Festival organizers decided this week they would plan for a live festival, typically on the second weekend of October in Girard Park, adjacent to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where it was first held in 1976. Last year’s event went virtual because of the pandemic.

Festival founder Barry Ancelet said organizers will monitor the health risks carefully in case things change: For example, if vaccinations slow or if there’s an unexpected rise in COVID-19 cases. But for now, it looks like a live event.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
