Mark your calendar now for The Lake Charles Symphony’s annual “Wild Beast Feast” on May 4, 2013 at Burton Memorial Coliseum.

Approximately 30 chef teams come together and create culinary concoctions. The teams include volunteers from area businesses and banks, local restaurants and caterers, or anyone who would like to prepare food for the event. Most of the food is cooked on-site, since a big part of the excitement is to watch the cooks in action. Just as much fun is the camaraderie and competition among the chef teams! Prizes are given for both the judges’ favorite and the peoples’ choice award for fried, grilled, and steamed dishes from land, from seed, or from sea, and the award for best pie.

Each participating cooking team will provide at least three hundred prepared small tastings and a serving tray/chafer. We will provide skirted tables, eating utensils, napkins and a sign with each cooking team’s name.

This is the perfect opportunity to promote and market your restaurant, business or festival. If you wish, feel free to advertise at your table by including flyers, menus, business cards and decorations.
