The 7th Tennessee Equality Project Gumbo Contest presented by Hilton Memphis will be held on Sunday, February 19, 2017. TEP's annual Mardi Gras celebration brings together teams from the Western, Middle and Eastern United States to compete for the best gumbo in Memphis. Gumbo contestants will be awarded prizes by an appointed panel of judges and by individual tasters like you in the People’s Choice competition. Enjoy the gumbo with New Orleans jazz from the HOT MEMPHIS 4 and start a second line on the dance floor. 

We will also present awards to two Champions of Equality from Memphis. 

TEP is grateful for the generous support of its presenting sponsor for 2017: Hilton Memphis!

Beverage Service: Each gumbo contest ticket for those 21 and older includes one voucher for beer from Memphis Made and High Cotton Breweries (more vouchers can be purchased for $5 with cash or credit/debit card from TEP). Hilton will also provide a full bar with wine, cocktails, other beer and soft drinks (cash only). Valid ID required for the service of any alcoholic beverages.
