A two-day event that celebrates the spirit and culture of St. Bernard Parish, the Calling It Home Festival is organized by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum and hosted by the Meraux Foundation. The event promises a weekend's worth of homespun Cajun, New Orleans jazz and regional music, food, and crafts at Docville Farm in Oak Grove. Exhibitors and crafters have been recruited to tell the story of St. Bernard's culture; food vendors will be serving specialties from raw and char-grilled oysters, to seafood poboys, barbecue, and gumbo. So it's bound to be fun. The festival really turns up the heat on Saturday with the second annual St. Bernard Parish Jambalaya Cook Off, taking place between 11 am and 2 pm. During the cook-off, teams of up to four will compete to carry off the heady title of "Best Jambalaya in St. Bernard Parish. For those who'd rather eat than cook, a $10 pay-one-price entry fee entitles you to all the jambalaya you can eat. Calling it home takes place from 11 am–7 pm both days at Docville Farm, 5124 East St. Bernard Highway in Violet. southernfood.org/calling-it-home.
