Downtown Alive!

Downtown Alive!  Fall 2016 Lineup 

Lafayette’s longest-running free, weekly concert series, Downtown Alive! (DTA!) is back this Fall starting September 16th with Feufollet taking the Parc Sans Souci stage.

This season, DTA! Is once again partnering with the Bayou Round-up on October 7th  to line the streets of Downtown with hundreds of classic cars and bringing Ragin’ Cajun spirit Downtown with the Yell Like Hell Friday Night Homecoming Pep Rally on November 4th with Keith Frank & the Soileau Zydeco Band. But that’s not all! The season also includes heavy-hitters, Wayne Toups and Cowboy Mouth rocking out on the Parc International stage and a few new names to the DTA! Lineup such as Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys and Cedryl Ballou & the Zydeco Trendsetters. The season closes out on Thanksgiving Eve with a holiday celebration and the lighting of the official city Christmas tree by Mayor-President Joel Robideaux, Carols and Cajun tunes by the Pine Leaf Boys and a Toys for Tots Toy Drive.

DTA! begins at 5:30 p.m. with food and beverage concessions – musical performances from 6:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Help us pay the band and keep your admission free when you buy your drinks and food at DTA! Outside drinks, pets and smoking are not allowed at DTA!.

“We are ready for the sun to shine and to see the shining faces of Acadiana coming out every Friday this fall for DTA!,” says Kate Durio, Director of Marketing and Events with Downtown Lafayette. “As the longest-running free concert series in Lafayette, DTA! Is an original and we hope to see all of Acadiana out there supporting DTA! Food and drink vendors while enjoying free admission, a great place to bring the family and experience our culture”.
