Fall in Lafayette

Lafayette is a destination that’s worth a visit any time of year. Fall is especially beautiful for spending time outdoors, with nature trails and cypress bayous waiting to be explored. Fall is also filled with events and festivals celebrating everything from blackpot cooking to local haunts, vintage hotrods, and modern films. The season’s biggest event is Festival Acadiens et Créoles, where our local culture shines with three days of authentic music, dancing, art, and food.
