Locals and music lovers are excited for yet another Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette, Louisiana! Festival International began in 1987, and has evolved into a highly regarded visual and performing arts celebration of South Louisiana’s French heritage. Festival pays tribute to French, African, Caribbean and Hispanic influences by inviting artists from around the world to share their talents with the Lafayette community. Locals anxiously await the beloved Festival weekend every year, and with only a few hours left on the countdown, Festival vibes are buzzing around Lafayette!
Calzone loves Festival, and having it downtown (practically in our backyard) is a great experience. The music and good vibes will be flowing from the streets into the office. In preparation for this year’s festival, we took a little stroll down memory lane. Our owner, Julie Calzone, is one of the Festival founders. We created the logo so that it would last several lifetimes – seems like that still holds true today! Share all of your 2015 Festival moments with us by using #FestivalCalzone when you post your photos and videos this year. We would love to see all of the fun you have! Here are a few of the Calzone team's personal favorite past Festival photos for you to enjoy.
