Festival International is set to host their inaugural Holiday Celebration and Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, December 15.

Shoppers can browse a wide selection of gear from over the years, brand new limited edition merchandise,  discounted festival passes, and more at festival headquarters on Lee Avenue. The Sidewalk Sale is from 8 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

There will be free mimosas and holiday music from around the world to celebrate the holiday season.

“This is our festive way to help our supportive community knock out some of their Christmas shopping list. The amount of gift opportunities we have is crazy, and we’re offering incredible pricing for these goodies,” says Carly Viator, festival’s marketing coordinator.

The festival passes will be 20% off with purchases of $10 or more. The merchandise ranges from festival aprons and flags to cutting boards, vintage shirts, pins, and posters. Aside from great collectibles from the past, there will also be brand new limited edition gifts, like festival sweatshirts, mugs, and a custom festival blend of coffee by Rêve Coffee Roasters.

“Your purchase supports festival and a small local business, which we think is appropriate for the holiday season. We are also offering a free surprise poster with each purchase, so don’t miss out,” Viator adds.

Any remaining merchandise will be added to Festival’s online shop the following week at

Pass discount offer is only valid at the event. For more information, visit Festival International de Louisiane on Facebook to view the event.
