Join us in celebrating all things local!
Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) has partnered with Downtown Lafayette Unlimited (DLU), the non-profit organization responsible for producing programming and marketing initiatives to help small businesses and artists thrive.
Local Palooza is a one-day celebration of local arts and culture in Downtown Lafayette. It aims to welcome our community back to outdoor, in-person gatherings; support Lafayette’s arts community through live entertainment, art market, and pop-up activations; and drive traffic to local businesses to give them a much-needed boost after a difficult year.
We look forward to welcoming local talent back in Parc International. Live show kicks off at 4:00pm with special performances continuing until 8:00pm. Entertainment in and around Parc Sans Souci will feature visual arts performances from Kabuki Dancers, Rachel Adams, Kaution Dance Group, and New Natives. Over 20 local vendors in partnership with the Louisiana Crafts Guild and Lafayette Arts & Fleas will be active in our artisan market as well.
Admission is FREE for all ages. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Please leave your ice chests at home with your pets. Local Palooza is a smoke-free and family-friendly event.
