15th Annual Cooking in Central Returns March 25-26 to Benefit Lower Terrebonne

 Cooking in Central, the official festival and premier charitable fundraiser of the City of Central, will bring out thousands of Central residents, friends of Central, and people who wish they were from Central for food, music, and fun Friday and Saturday, March 25 and 26. 

This event, run entirely by volunteers, has raised millions of dollars in support of education and victims of natural disasters like hurricanes and tornadoes. This year’s Cooking in Central will raise money for Lower Terrebonne Parish, which was devastated by Hurricane Ida.

The fun starts Friday evening at 5 p.m. at the “Amazing Place” at 10305 Blackwater Road in Central with the city’s largest crawfish boil ($20/plate), a Progressive Auction at 6 p.m., and The Molly Ringwalds Band at 7 p.m.

The gates open again Saturday at 2 p.m. and the music starts at 4 p.m. with the School of Rock Band. The tasty results of the famous barbecue cook-off competition are served starting at 5 p.m. ($15/plate) including Jambalaya, BBQ Chicken, Cochon-De-Lait and Pork Roast. There are games for the kids throughout the weekend plus Live and Progressive Auctions. The entertainment continues Saturday night with the music of the Chase Tyler Band at 7 p.m.

With the return of Cooking in Central after last year’s postponement, along with the opportunity to help Central’s neighbors in Lower Terrebonne Parish, this year’s event should bring in one of the largest crowds in its 17-year history. Come on out for a great weekend of family fun while showing the folks in Terrebonne Parish we care!

Tickets are available at all Central public schools, the Central Chamber of Commerce, and Ross Tire and Service.
