Woodbury Campus Center, USM Portland Campus

On Tuesday March 5, the Woodbury Campus Center on the Portland Campus of USM will be replete with the tastes, smells and sounds of the 24th annual WMPG Fat Tuesday Celebration.

WMPG will be live broadcasting Cajun, Zydeco and New Orleans music all day.

As always, the highlight of the day will be the WMPG Cajun Cookin’ Challenge from noon to 3 pm. Local restaurants participate, serving samples of their delectable Cajun and Creole-inspired offerings prepared specially for this competitive event. The appreciative attendees vote for their favorite entries and the winning restaurant receives a trophy to display at their establishment.

There’s no formal admission charge, though donations are gladly accepted. This is a late-winter celebration of music, food and the spirit of New Orleans!
