This Fall Gulf Brew returns to Downtown Lafayette as a street festival along Jefferson & Vermilion Streets. Jefferson Street between the Juliet Hotel & La Carreta Restaurant will be pedestrian-only with several tap trucks & music stages scattered throughout. The main stage will be set up directly in front of the AcA on the 100 block of West Vermilion & the VIP Lounge will be inside AcA.

Returning to the original roots of Gulf Brew, “Brewer’s Alley” will be on the street in front of AcA with an outdoor stage featuring live music all afternoon. The event will begin with the coronation of “King and Queen of the Brew,” two community leaders who have triumphed in a fundraising competition in support of AcA’s Arts in Education mission.
