Flavor of Louisiana is presented in partnership with the Louisiana Seafood Board and the NSU Foundation and showcases specialty seafood dishes prepared by restaurateurs, chefs and caterers from around the state, along with specialty cocktails, craft beers, desserts and options for non-seafood eaters. The event also features live music, dancing, raffles, silent auctions and more.
“After a COVID-induced hiatus, last year’s return of Flavor of Louisiana was one of most popular events that took place at NSU and we are thrilled to be hosting the 2023 event,” said Cristy Bernard, assistant director of Donor Relations. “Guests can expect great food, good people and lots of fun on March 17. It’s a celebration of the Demon family, donors, supporters, students, alumni and friends.”

Sponsorships are available at the Magnolia ($1,000), Bayou ($2,500) and Louisiana ($5,000) levels and come with signage, reserved seating, admission to a sponsor’s only cocktail pre-party, special gifts and other corresponding perks.
