(Updated 4:00 PM !2/05/2018)  Organizers say the threat of inclement weather is the reason they have decided to reschedule the event. The new date is Saturday, December 15th. We look forward to seeing you in downtown Lafayette.

(Original Post) Is there is someone in your life that absolutely loves Festival International? If so, then Saturday will be the day for you to do your holiday shopping. Festival International is holding a sidewalk sale at the Festival offices on Lee Street. 

Among the items that will be available for purchase are Festival gear from throughout the years plus other limited edition merchandise. You will also be able to secure your Festival International upgrade passes at discount prices during the event.

While the Festival remains free, these passes offer a VIP experience that includes shorter drink lines and faster access to restrooms.  Organizers say this is a great way to give the gift of Festival International for Christmas.

The sidewalk sale is scheduled to run from 8 AM until 11 AM at 315 Lee Avenue. In addition to the great Festival merchandise, you can also enjoy Mimosas and festive holiday music from around the world while you shop. Organizers say that in the event of inclement weather the sidewalk sale will be moved inside the Festival Offices on Lee Avenue.
