Festival Rain Angels were founded when rain threatened
the financial stability of Festival International.

Rain Angels are a stronghold of Festival’s success. These  donors ensure that, rain-or-shine, the spotlight Festival International casts on Acadiana shines bright.  It was created more than twenty years ago after rain threatened to inundate Festival’s books, and is now so integrated with “how we festival.”  

Members of this special Circle enjoy the perks that they receive for their support. The views and top-notch food and drink from the Rain Angels’ tent (pictured above) make it THE place to be for an incredible Festival experience. We all win!
