WMPG FAT Tuesday Cajun Cookin’ Contest

Feb 13, 2018 @ 12:00pm   Events, Member Events

WMPG will again be hosting our renowned Fat Tuesday party. This will be the 23rd year that we celebrate Mardi Gras with our volunteers, listeners, USM and the greater Portland Community. It all happens on February 13, 2018 from noon to 3pm at the USM Woodbury Campus Center in Portland.

WMPG will be broadcasting New Orleans music live from the event. There will be plenty of WMPG on-air personalities to spin tunes, and there may be some surprise musical guest showing up to perform live Acadian music in the amphitheatre.

This year’s restaurant participants include: USM Dining/Sodexo (defending their 2017 title); Bayside American Café; Abilene Portland; Gritty’s; Po Boys & Pickles; Whole Foods; Lenny’s Westbrook; and Uncle Billy’s BBQ.

Fat Tuesday Cajun Cookin’ Challenge is WMPG’s celebration of the Acadian-Cajun Connection and Maine’s special relationship with the people, music and flavors of New Orleans. Each year, this mid-winter party is a huge thank you to the people Southern Maine, and at USM, for keeping WMPG Community Radio alive and well for over 43 years.
