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.
