Events

Work hard, play hard. It’s not just a motto; it’s a way of life here in the heart of Cajun & Creole Country. No matter what time of year you visit Lafayette, LA we will have something for you to celebrate. That’s in large part because we have a festival for everything-from beer to boudinshrimp to sugarcane, gumbo to gratons-there is literally something happening every week.

Getting to Lafayette

The city of Lafayette, LA is located in the center of Lafayette Parish at the intersection of I-10 and I-49 between New Orleans and Houston and only 35 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico. The eight parishes that comprise the area are Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion. Acadiana is made up of 22 South Louisiana parishes that extend from south of Alexandria in the center of the state, to Lake Charles on the west, south of New Orleans on the east, and to the Gulf of Mexico in the south.
