Festival International de Louisiane recently announced the line-up for the 32nd annual Festival which will take place from Wednesday, April 25 until Sunday, April 29. This year's festival includes both local and international artists showcasing a variety of styles and sounds. This year's line-up includes recent Grammy winners Lost Bayou Ramblers, Carencro native Marc Broussard, as well as international musicians Ibibio Sound Machine and Mydy Rabycad.

Like every event, the Festival requires funds to provide the best experiences for those who attend. This year the festival will hold several fundraising events including Evaluation Day happening on Saturday, March 3 at the Petroleum Club of Lafayette located at 111 Heymann Blvd. The event will feature appraisal specialists from the Neal Auction Company of New Orleans. Organizers say that attendees will be able to bring in their prized family possessions or estate sale treasures to have them looked over by experts. 

Tickets are $50 and are limited to only 100 attendees. Up to three items can be brought in for evaluation. More information about the event, what can and cannot be evaluated, and where to purchase tickets can be found at festivalinternational.org.

For those who cannot attend the Evaluation Day event, Festival International has a list of merchandise available for purchase as well as the Festival Pass Program which allows festival-goers a chance to experience the festival with more ease and convenience. The Festival will also bring back its phone app. A special announcement will be made regarding the app at a later time.

Festival artists will be spotlighted on the Festival International website every day leading up until festival. A list of those artists can be found, here.
