Dauphin Island Gumbo Festival events to go on despite rainy forecastThe Saturday events for the 4th Annual Dauphin Island Gumbo Festival are scheduled to proceed despite a rainy forecast. The pre-sale ticket price of $12 has been extended through Saturday. The event is being rebranded as The Dauphin Island Gumbo and Weather Festival.
Event organizers have developed a back-up staging plan utilizing the covered area at the Rodeo headquarters and several very large tents. In the event of incoming severe weather, scheduled performance times may be delayed or accelerated. A final decision for staging and music line-up times will be made early on Saturday Morning.
The Gumbo cook-off and tasting will proceed at the scheduled time of 11am-2pm. All cooking teams have been contacted and are still excited to cook- even if it is in the rain.
All other festival activities will go on at the regularly scheduled times.
