What is Gumbo YaYa?

Amateur and professional teams will compete for bragging rights for the best Gumbo in Pensacola. Each individual gumbo will be judged on taste, smell, color, and consistency. Trophies will be awarded to the top three winners. In addition, there is a Showmanship trophy, given for best decoration and entertainment, and the coveted People’s Choice trophy!

Entry to the competition is $20.00 per three-person team and is limited to 15 teams. Seville Quarter will supply tables, burners, and a clean-up area. Each team must prepare their gumbo “from scratch” at Seville Quarter. Cooking begins at 11:00 a.m. and the judging begins at 4:00 p.m.

All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida.
