LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) On Sunday, there was a revelation evening for the Festival International de Louisiane.

Organizers unveiled this year’s new pin and poster, which form a big part of the fundraising efforts to support the festival.

“It’s great, it’s just like a little taster. The music, the vibes, all the people. Just a little bit to give you a taste of what to expect for April and we’re so excited that I’m so ready, so ready for it to be back,” Hannah Johnson said.

The International Festival is one of many events the community looks forward to each year and after being delayed for two years, the community is thrilled to have it back.

“Our first time back in person since 2019, so we’re very happy to see all the smiling faces to hear some music. We have food and it’s already starting to look like a festival,” said Carly Viator, Marketing Director.

Many people from the community gathered at Warehouse 535 for the reveal party featuring the official poster by visual artist Dirk Guidry.

“I think everyone is going to be super excited for the music lineup this year and the artwork that’s being revealed today is so beautiful and totally encompasses what the festival is all about,” Viator said.

“It’s very lively and very festival to me,” visual artist Dirk Guidry said of his piece.

“The festival is definitely my favorite time of the year. Two years without it has been very depriving. So I’m so excited for him to be back and for me to become the official artist,” Guidry said.

“I’m really excited! The festival is like the highlight of the year for me and most days I go every five days so it’s super exciting to be back,” Johnson said. .

“Mark the year the festival came back in person and blew the roof off Lafayette,” Viator said.

The event will take place from April 27 to May 1.
