Music Festival in Louisiana

August 24, 2016

A free music festival that happens every year in Lafayette, LA is Festival International de Louisiana. It is a great music festival for all ages in the heart of Cajun Country, Lafayette, LA. My wife and I, who are Lafayette natives, take our two kids there every year.

Music Festival Expectations at Festival International de Louisiana

Festival International is hosted in downtown Lafayette, LA every April. The music at this music festival is always great and eclectic, especially if you can make some of the night performances. Therefore, make sure to bring some cash with you because you will want to buy a CD or two! I have found some of my favorite artists from this music festival.

Also, if you are looking to stay at this music festival the entire day, there are plenty of food vendors for you to choose from. Lafayette, which is in the heart of Cajun Country, is known for it’s delicious food and restaurants. Believe me, anything and everything is good!

In addition, if you plan on bringing your kids, this is definitely something that they will enjoy. Make sure to bring some snacks for them to enjoy. Also there is a local school nearby that hosts an arts and crafts area in the playground of their school. Therefore, there is plenty of room for your kids to run around and burn some energy! Be ready for them to fall asleep in the car afterwards!

Finally, here is a fun video of our first day at Festival International from this year. Hopefully it will give you an idea of what to expect from this free music festival.

FiberFete & Festival International de Louisiane

April 19, 2010

I went down to the LITE center in Lafayette, LA today to help out with getting the webcast set up for FiberFete.

FiberFete is a Celebration of our Connected Future. Lafayette, LA has set up a fiber network around the city, and it is one of the first cities to be able to accomplish such a task. Now every other city in the nation want what Lafayette has, and I am proud to put in my help with this effort.

If you cannot make it to the FiberFete event, all of it will be streamed via Click Play below to watch:

FiberFĂȘte is an invitation-only conference to bring local leaders together with a wide variety of national and international Internet experts to discuss how communities like Lafayette can realize the greatest return on investment in their networks and explore how to drive economic development and enhance their community’s quality of life.
