Festival organizers have added a 2nd shuttle stop that will be in operation during peak performance times on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 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 ser vice, we’ve seen ridership increase dramatically. We decided to add another shuttle as a way to assist with overall traffic flow”
