Not only is there great food, music, events and cool merchandise to be found at the 27th annual Festival International de Louisiane, but artisans come from all over the world, and right here at home, to sell their merchandise. It is a great way to get some very unique items that you can't get anywhere else, and talk to the actual people who made them! Plus, the prices are really really reasonable!

There are two locations to buy arts and crafts at Festival - the fine arts and crafts are generally at Parc San Souci, which includes a lot of our Louisiana artisans, and then the world wide arts and crafts are at Marche des Arts, which you can access either from Jefferson Street, or the courthouse area- Scene TV5 Monde - between Jefferson and Buchanan. Both are incredible, and I'm very very excited to see what is available to us festival goers this year!

Check out some of the merchants and their wares, and we will see you in downtown Lafayette!
