The Race Has Been Cancelled Till Next Year

It is with a heavy heart and we are so sorry to let you know that due to the 4th surge of Covid-19, the Jambalaya Festival Association Board made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 festival.  The 5k Run has been postponed until next year.  We are hoping to have it on May 28, 2022.

We want all of our dedicated runners to be healthy and stay that way.  We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you Memorial Day weekend 2022!
