What is Festival International de Louisiane?

Taking place at the end of April each year, Festival International is a 5-day celebration of culture through music, food, art and performance. This event transforms Lafayette, La. into an entertainment mecca with music from around the world being shared on multiple stages throughout downtown.  We will see you all at our 35th annual event next spring!

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. Aside from serving as a great economic impact, Festival also provides visitors with a chance to explore the bold culture and creativity of Acadiana while also experiencing diverse cultures from across the globe.
