Festival International offers new shuttle location

LAFAYETTE, La. - With nearly 400,000 visitors on hand, Festival organizers work year round on all aspects of festival programming. Parking is usually the last thing on a music fan's mind when planning for Festival. But as any festival fan can attest, having free and convenient transportation adds to the overall Festival experience. Festival International de Louisiane in partnership Lafayette Consolidated Government, the University of Louisiana Lafayette and a sponsorship with Southern Super Chevy Dealers Association, offers a FREE Shuttle Service to ALL festival-goers. Easy, convenient, and FREE.

The Festival Shuttle runs Thursday, April 25-Sunday, April 28, with a pick up location at Cajun Field on the corner of Congress and Cajundome Boulevard. The drop off location for the shuttle is in Downtown Lafayette, on the corners of Jefferson Street and Lee Ave, near the Festival Volunteer Center.

NEW FOR 2013! Festival organizers have added a 2nd shuttle stop that will be in operation during peak performance times on Friday, April 26th and Saturday, April 27th only. The new shuttle stop is located at the corner of Garfield and Buchanan streets near Americas Coffeehouse in downtown Lafayette.

Dana Baker, Executive Director of Festival International de Louisiane explains, "In the 8 years that we have offered the free shuttle service, we've seen ridership increase dramatically. We decided to add another shuttle as a way to assist with overall traffic flow"

The Festival shuttles start 30 minutes before Festival performances begin each day and ends 30 minutes after the last performance of the evening. The shuttles run every 15 minutes from the start time until the last pick up. Below is the detailed schedule for both Downtown Lafayette drop-off locations:
