Esprit de Coeur
402 Garfield
Lafayette, LA

The ceremony will be short and sweet. We'll have some toasts and devour John's gumbo, red beans and rice, and who knows what more and then head out to the Festival. 

The Esprit de Coeur house is right behind main stage. So please dress comfortably. Wear white if you like. Flip flops are fine. It's probably going to be pretty hot in the afternoon.

Saturday's lineup has bands from France, Belgium, Nova Scotia, Uganda, Mauritania, Nigeria, Guinea, and lots of local favorites.
