AMATEUR TEAMS (Saturday only cook-off)
Shrimp Gumbo Stroll :
Saturday, Sept. 26 from 12-4 pm
NEW FOR 2015: Optional Gumbo Stroll Teams will no longer be required to serve gumbo to the public. This portion of the event is 100% optional. We would like to invite your team to participate in the Amateur Cook Off Division. The Cook Off is the heart of Galveston Island Shrimp Festival and we encourage teams to return and defend their title or to challenge the current reigning champions! Please review the full application packet and contact us with any questions or concerns.
AMATEUR DIVISION (aka Not a Restaurant Chef): We are excited to welcome all past and new participating cook-off teams.. Other categories this year include Shrimp Gumbo, Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, Shrimp Bisque, Open Shrimp and Shrimp Burger.
