Overlooked Area for Great Food

We have a penchant for going to smaller festivals.....basically school fairs. Some have the usual fair food such as burgers and pizza, but others have outstanding food. Although much of their food is run of the mill, the Tomato Festival this weekend has the most awesome "Tomatoes A La Chalmette". It's fried green tomatoes (not overbattered or fried to end of their life like at Jazz Fest) covered with a shrmp cream sauce. Awesome. We also like comparing jambalayas but this one is boring, but they have a good shrimp pasta.
