Jacob’s Andouille Announces Alternative Plans in Lieu of Andouille Festival

LAPLACE– For the rest of October, Jacob’s World Famous Andouille will be dedicating its online presence to virtually, celebrating andouille and its history. In the absence of the St. John the Baptist Parish annual Andouille Festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jacob’s

Andouille Facebook and Instagram pages will be host to a variety of social media posts celebrating the month dedicated to the Andouille Festival.

  Followers can expect nods to the past, andouille-based recipes, promotional discounts, contests, and giveaways. Weekly giveaways will begin on Monday of each week, and winners announced on Saturdays.

  “We want to allow our community to share in our love of andouille, even though we can’t celebrate together this year,” says Aaron Lions, fourth-generation owner of Jacob’s Andouille.

  This month-long celebration comes shortly after the Louisiana’s River Parishes Tourist Commission launch of the Andouille Trail, a culinary byway celebrating the multitude of ways to enjoy local andouille. Jacob’s World Famous Andouille is proud to be featured as a location on the trail.

  Patrons are encouraged to follow on both Facebook and Instagram to learn more about rules

and eligibility.
