With Louisiana being the festival capital of the world, FACE asked Acadiana locals, “What’s your favorite festival and why?”


“Festival International because it’s local. I don’t have to drive far and I’m introduced to music from talented artists I’d never get to see otherwise.”

~Sadie Shamsie, Lafayette


“I like Mardi Gras because I like to hang out with friends and pass a good time.”

~Lynzy Cho, Scott


“The Latin Music Festival. I’m originally from Venezuela so I like music I can do the salsa and merengue to.”

~Samantha Lowe, Lafayette


“The Cracklin Cookoff because it’s a local festival that brings family and friends together.”

~Heather Blanchard, Parks

“The Crawfish Festival—because crawfish & beer. Is there anything else?”

~John Fonseca Lafayette


“I’m looking forward to checking out the Scott Boudin Festival.”

~Jennifer Broussard Carencro


“I like Festival International for the music.”

~Regina Dauphin Cankton


“Festival Acadien et Creoles because it presents the opportunity for the whole family to participate. The park lends itself to children, allowing them to run free without getting lost in a mass of people. The music’s great; food’s great; people are great.”

~Ramon John Fonseca Jr., Lafayette
