Festival International

Lafayette’s annual Festival International de Louisiane provides the ideal opportunity to discover what makes Lafayette so unique. Festival International de Louisiane is the largest non-ticketed outdoor Francophone festival in the country celebrating the connections between Acadiana and the Francophone world. Hundreds of performing and visual artists from 15 countries, along with Lafayette’s own artists, residents and visitors, converge on seven stages across Downtown Lafayette for five days of world music.
