Spring 2020 Festival International Called offWe regret to announce that Festival International de Louisiane is officially called off for this spring, April 22-26, 2020. After vigorously exploring options and hoping for an optimistic outcome, the coronavirus, COVID-19, has posed too much of a threat for us to carry-on planning for our Festival next month.
We are exploring all possible options for rescheduling in the Fall. There are, of course, major challenges in pursuing this and we are not sure of the feasibility at this time. We will be working over the coming days to evaluate and analyze what our options are and will communicate as we know more. We ask for patience as we find solutions at this time.
Our thoughts are with everyone around the world impacted by this volatile situation. We extend our most sincere thank you to our community, patrons, sponsors, supporters, volunteers, artists, vendors, media, and the Lafayette Consolidated Government for your support and patience during this difficult time.
What is Festival International de Louisiane?
Festival International is a 5-day celebration of culture through music, food, art and performance. Each year, this event transforms Lafayette, La. into an entertainment mecca with music from around the world being shared on multiple stages throughout downtown.
Festival International is the largest international music and arts festival in the United States and strengthens the Francophone community and the international communities who call Lafayette home. This annual ticketless festival features musical performances by artists from more than 24 countries, diverse cuisine, open-air art markets, workshops, exhibits, visual art, children’s activities, theater and performance arts.
We are a non-profit organization that proudly attracts visitors from up to 48 states and 26 countries on any given year.
