Lafayette, Louisiana is a center hub for hundreds of festivals all year long. The culture here is one of a kind, and the various festivals highlight our heritage like you wouldn’t believe. You always have options here, whether you like live concerts, music and food festivals, or beautiful parks to hang out at. Festival Acadian and Festival international bring in people from all over the world, and it is right here in our backyard!
We promise it is cooler than it sounds! You can take tours and get up close and personal with big alligators, turtles, and tons of bird species. For those brave enough, you can rent kayaks and spend the day fishing or paddling around the beautiful Lake Martin, which is about 15 minutes away from campus.
