Festival International and Downtown Lafayette Unlimited Collaborate for Fall & Spring DTA! Season

Downtown Lafayette Unlimited and Festival International de Louisiane are excited to announce a collaboration for the fall 2017 Downtown Alive! Season. The two organizations have agreed to pool together resources to execute a more polished Downton Alive! Experience for patrons.

“With DTA!’s Spring and Fall season-long presence, and Festival’s demonstrated talent to deliver a large, world-class music event in the Spring, putting these two efforts together seems like a natural fit,” says DDA and Downtown Lafayette Unlimited CEO Geoff Dyer. “Both of these events were born out of a shared desire to promote our musical culture within the backdrop of Lafayette’s Downtown. We are excited that Festival International is open to lending us the talent and skills of their team to help deliver an even better DTA!.”

Festival International understands the importance of community support and was open to the opportunity. “With limited resources all around, we are happy to collaborate and pool our talents together. It can only strengthen each organization,” says Scott Feehan, Executive Director for Festival International. “We look forward to exploring future growth with DLU.”

The Festival International staff will assist with logistics, organization, promotion, and execution of the ten DTA! Events scheduled for the fall and will be considered an in-kind sponsor for the DTA! Fall Season.
