Downtown Lafayette Wins Prestigious Award

Parc San Souci

Lafayette, Louisiana is a very special, unique place! I’ve lived in three distinctly different regions of the U.S., and there’s no place like Acadiana! The music, the art, the food, and the jois de vivre are unlike anywhere else. We’ve gained recognition for being the South’s Tastiest Town from Southern Living Magazine on of the 15 best places to live in La., and Festival International has been recognized as “Best World Music Festival.” Add another award to the list.

Downtown Lafayette has been named the 2014 recipient of the Cultural District Award by Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne, and the Louisiana Office of cultural Development.

Downtown Lafayette reported new initiatives of 2nd Saturday ArtWalk, public art and art demonstrations, the addition of the Times of Acadiana ArtWalk Bandstand, arts outreach, local music, creative business collaboration and community partnerships, food and other cultural contributions that garnered the award.

Lt. Governor Dardenne said, “The Louisiana Culture Awards recognize the very best efforts made to highlight and cultivate our state’s rich cultural resources, and Downtown Lafayette’s work over many years has been a consummate example.”
