Lafayette, LA – Festival International de Louisiane, Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, and Downtown Alive! Have partnered to create a music triangle of support.
The three organizations have provided free music celebrations for over 100 years, collectively.
“Music is the heartbeat of any culture. But in Acadiana, that heart beats so loudly because of our free music culture that allows anyone and everyone to see world-class live music without paying admission. Supporting this free music culture is so important to keep the music playing, for free. We wanted to make it easier for anyone who loves our free music festivals to give and be rewarded for their love,” said Kate Durio, Director of Marketing & Events, Downtown Lafayette.
Funding for each music event comes from various resources such as sponsorships, grants, donations and beverage sales. Supporters who would like to donate to Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, Downtown Alive and Festival International de Louisiane, can now do so with one monetary donation through the website www.ILoveFestivals.org.
