Local Festivals

Louisiana, rightfully called the “festival capital” of America, hosts more than 400 festivals each year. On average, that’s more than 1 per day. We celebrate just about every crop harvested, every indigenous dish cooked, and every type of music that’s played here. No matter when you visit, you can find a festival that will feature live music and great food.Many of these festivals are held right here in South Louisiana.

A few of the more known and popular festivals are Festival International de Louisiane, Festivals Acadiens, and of course Mardi Gras!

We have compiled a list of festivals more localized to Lafayette and surrounding communities with links for more information:
