Festival International takes over downtown Lafayette Wednesday, 4/25, through Sunday, 4/29. "International" is the operative word, as the entertainment lineup features everything from homegrown Grammy winners like Terrence Simien to the Czech Republic glamtronic/electro-pop group Mydy Rabycad.
In order to provide a safer experience for Festival goers, Festival International has been working with LUS, LUS Fiber and the Lafayette Police Department to put new security measures in place this year.
