Lafayette Latin Music Festival returns in October after 2-year hiatus | festivals


The Latin Music Festival will return to Lafayette after two years with Cuban artist Cimafunk, local artists and a new variety show.

“We are so ready to see Latin Fest take over Parc International again,” said Scott Feehan, Executive Director of the International Festival.

The Asociación Cultural Latino-Acadiana, the ACLA and the Festival International de Louisiane will hold the festival on October 1 at Parc International. The festival will feature New Orleans’ Rumba Buena, Malentina and the Lafayette Latin All-Stars as well as a new variety show called “Latinos on the Rise.”

“The musical performances are going to make this year’s event a success,” Feehan said. “We’ve seen Cimafunk’s effect on the crowds, and you don’t want to miss them or the other acts we have in store.”

The event celebrates Latino culture. Attendees can experience culture through authentic food, music, art vendors, children’s activities and more.

“ACLA’s mission is to promote and preserve Hispanic heritage in Acadiana,” said ACLA President Pablo Estrada. “We invite you to celebrate our culture with us, and by purchasing a ticket, you are helping us ensure that our contribution lives on for future generations.”

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at or at the event. Children 12 and under enjoy free entry.
