LAFAYETTE, La. -

Festival International wants patrons with disabilities to have a great festival experience. Organizers have released information to help make the experience easy. 
 
Getting there:

There is plenty of free accessible parking at Cajun Field (Congress and Cajundome Blvd.) Thursday - Friday, and at Blackham Coliseum (Johnston and Cajundome Blvd.) Saturday - Sunday. Free accessible shuttle service is provided to two stops downtown: Jefferson Street/Lee Avenue and Garfield/Buchanan. All buses are lift-equipped. Shuttles run during Festival hours and until 11:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, midnight on Saturday, and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.
 
Parking in downtown Lafayette is very difficult during the festival. The primarily accessible parking in downtown is located in the municipal parking garage on Buchanan between W. Convent and Main St. Accessible spaces there are limited and are only available on a first come, first-serve basis. 
 
Getting around:

Festival International is located on the streets and sidewalks of downtown Lafayette. Many of the streets are closed to vehicles and open to pedestrians. Not all sidewalks are accessible, but there are accessible sidewalks along Jefferson Street, along Main Street from Buchanan to Jefferson, along E. Vermillion from Lafayette to Polk, and along the front of the federal courthouse on Lafayette Street.
 
Accessible viewing areas:

There are viewing areas reserved for people who need accessibility features near the stage at the Scène Laborde Earles Law Firm Fais Do Do and at the Scène LUS Internationale. You can access the ADA seating area at Scène Laborde Earles Law Firm Fais Do Do directly from Jefferson St. and at Scène LUS Internationale from the Garfield Street. entrance.
 
Restrooms:

There is at least one accessible port-a-let in each bank of portable restrooms at the Festival. Patrons who do not need accessibility features of these restrooms are asked not to use them.
 
Feedback:

The Festival and the Lafayette Mayor-President's Awareness Committee for Citizens with Disabilities would like your feedback about access to the festival for people with disabilities.

Feel free to email them with comments, positive or negative, at info@festivalinternational.org
