New Orleans is known for its food and musical festivals in the French Quarter, but on Sunday, June 30 in the Garden District, there will be a food festival showcasing eight restaurants in the area, all in walking distance of each other.

The event, “We Live to Eat Neighborfood” presented by Dishcrawl, will strive to celebrate the culture and food of the area by allowing participants to attend the restaurants, with all proceeds going to local charities. So far, the charities that Dishcrawl is working with include Second Harvest Food Bank, Grow Dat Youth Farm, March of Dimes, and 19 Fund.

Kenniece Johnson, Dishcrawl New Orleans Ambassador, told New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, “We have been so welcomed by the New Orleans community since our Inaugural event, this Neighborfood event is an opportunity to celebrate one of its finest neighborhoods and give back as well.”

The tickets are only $10 a person and can be bought on Dishcrawl’s website. One ticket includes admission to the event, one food and drink ticket for one of the participating restaurants, as well as five raffle tickets; some of the locations will have drink specials, and more tickets can be bought at the event. Check in for the event starts at 1:30 p.m. at Diva Dog on Magazine Street, and some of the restaurants that will be participating are Honeydeux, Diva Dog, Voodoo BBQ, Down the Hatch, and Roux Public House, with more to come. It’s a great event for the whole family to attend, so come down to the historic Garden District at the end of June for a worthwhile food and drink experience.
