Lafayette, LA is at the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun & Creole Country, an area known for letting the good times roll, or as we say it laissez les bons temps rouler. Popularly known for its diverse culture and mouthwatering food, Lafayette, Louisiana, is dubbed the ‘Happiest City in America’. Founded by the Acadians in the early 19th century, the legacy of Louisiana’s French, Spanish and Caribbean ancestors comes together in Lafayette, creating a city with an exciting array of culture, music, languages, food and fun times.
With its lively activities like street festivals, impromptu Zydeco concerts, historic plantations and food markets, an atmosphere of fun is created where the locals still order their plate lunches in Louisiana French. Their global event, Festival International, attracts people from all around the world.
