As the official social media team for Festival International de Louisiana <#humblebrag>, we get the inside scoop on must-see shows, special events, & some fun surprises the Festival team has up their sleeves. Here are our top tips for this year:

  • For the first year ever, there is a Festival Snapchat filter! Use it to add some festive flair to your pics.
  • Regretting that you didn’t get a pass this year? Just stop by any merch tent & you’re on your way to VIP stage viewing & shorter drink lines!
  • Surprises happening at the following shows:
    • Les Etoiles de l’Immersion (Thurs. @7 – Scène LUS International)
    • Sirius Plan (Sat. @1 – Scène TV5Monde Lafayette)
    • Festival Finale with GIVERS (Sun @5:30 – Scène LUS International)
  • Bonsoir Catin’s set (Sun @2:30 – JD Bank Pavillon de Cuisine) will also be their album release party.
  • My personal fav: 2 of my amazing kids will be performing Sunday at Chevron Scène des Jeunes. Great place to take the kids (or pretend to be a kid).
  • The famed Dragon Knights stilt walkers will be back with something completely new this year!
  • Follow along with #LetsOwnTheMoment – a celebration of those special once-in-a-lifetime moments that make up all of our Festival experiences. Add your moments to the story too!

As for as food goes, we’re definitely grabbing some Indian food from the newest addition to the Festival food scene, Masala. We’ve also been saving room for our favs: ice pops from Meltdown, butter & sugar crepe from Crepes a la Cart, & festival fries from Blanchard’s BBQ.

No matter how you plan on spending this glorious festival weekend, be sure to say hi when you see us running around! Bon festival, mon amis!
