Festival de Musique Acadienne et Créoles is one of the festivals held the second weekend in October that collectively are known as Festivals Acadiens et Créoles. Usually, people just say "Festivals Acadiens" when they refer to the two days filled with activities that include the Bayou Foods Festival and the Louisiana Crafts Fair, all held at Girard Park in Lafayette, LA. The photos in this collection include most of the bands in the music festival, but, with two stages, a dance tent, a workshop tent, and a jam tent, it was impossible to get photos of every group. In 2008, Downtown Alive!, held Friday evening in downtown Lafayette, was also incorporated in the activities. In 2008, Festivals Acadiens et Créoles honored Zachary Richard.
