Mark your calendar now for The Lake Charles Symphony’s annual “Wild Beast Feast” on March 25 at the Courtyard at the Historic Calcasieu Marine National Bank Building.


Approximately 20 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. Cook and prep your food ahead or cook 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.


New this year! We are inviting chefs/teams to bring vegan options for our guests!


Each participating cooking team will provide at least two 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.
