The largest, most-authentic Louisiana-themed music and food festival this side of the bayou returns to America's Finest City this May 11 through 14. Presented by San Diego’s Bon Temps Social Club, the 16th annual Gator By The Bay features four days of live music with over 100 musical acts and special performances on seven stages, as well as southern cuisine including 10,000 pounds of crawfish trucked from Louisiana, non-stop live music, dancing and family fun at Spanish Landing Park on beautiful San Diego Bay. We are raffling off 2 pairs of single-day tickets to this fun & delicious event.
The festival boasts five wooden dance floors, including two 3,000 square-foot shaded dance floors at each of the two main stages, and offers free lessons by some of the finest dance instructors in the country. The French Quarter Food Court features the authentic tastes of Louisiana, with many vendors making the cross-country trip just for the festival. Revelers will fill up on fresh Louisiana-raised crawfish, boudin sausage, catfish, alligator, barbecue and oysters. A mouth-watering selection of Louisiana favorites will also be available, including gumbo, jambalaya, po’ boys and etouffée. For dessert there will be a Southern selection of beignets, sweet potato pie, homemade ice cream, pralines and bread pudding. There will also be special activities for kids, including the costumed Mardi Gras parades and making outrageous hats with the Rad Hatter and a market area that offers retail therapy from carefully selected craft vendors to Mardi Gras-inspired goods and clothing, art, hand-made jewelry, dancing shoes and accessories.
