JOIN US FOR THE 40th Annual 


NOVEMBER 2 & 3, 2024!

Abbeville, Louisiana


The Confrerie D' Abbeville welcomes you to Abbeville's "5000 EGG" Giant Omelette Celebration! Our celebration is like no other festival.

This family-oriented event including a kids world kicks off Saturday morning in Historic Downtown Abbeville.

Abbeville's Magdaline Square with its majestic oaks and old-fashioned gazebo is the setting for the 2 day Arts & Craft Show.

Stop and dance to some of Louisiana's best music.

Antique farm implements provide a challenge to those competing in Saturday's egg cracking contest.

The fun continues on Sunday with the addition of the antique cars on display, along with more music guaranteed to get you dancing.

Grab your seat early for the procession of chefs, eggs, and bread to the Giant 12-foot skillet where fun and follie are the order of the day for those preparing the "5000 Egg" Giant Omelette.

Take a look, then make your plans to attend the first full weekend in November.

The Jr. members of the organization gather around the 4' skillet to cook their own 600 egg omelette. 

The Jr. omelette is cooked along side of the Giant Omelette.
