Once a year, the Downtown Kiwanis Club of Baton Rouge hold its annual Pancake Festival fundraiser to help the youth of our community as well as our less-fortunate citizens who contend with problems such as disability, homelessness, and illiteracy. In recent years, the Downtown Kiwanis Pancake Festival has raised approximately $50,000 annually for the community through this one-day event.
This year’s Pancake Festival on Saturday, October 29, 2016, will run from 6:00am to 12:30pm, at LSU’s Maravich Assembly Center. Takeout orders are also available. Alongside breakfast, there’s also a youth Talent Show and a student Art Contest.
Everyone is invited. Tickets for the Pancake Festival are only $6.00 in advance, and $7.00 on the date. To buy tickets in advance, please see any Downtown Kiwanis Club member. For more information on tickets, or on the Festival itself, please send an email on our "Contact Us" page. Be sure to include your phone number as well as let us know where and when would be good to meet to get the tickets.
