APRIL 17-19, 2024

Conference Location

Lafayette is at the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun & Creole Country, an area known as the Happiest City in America where people visit for a genuine Cajun & Creole experience.

Lafayette has a distinct culinary identity as the epicenter of Cajun & Creole cuisine that’s earned them the title Best Food City in the USA. Lafayette’s culinary scene is steeped in tradition and continues to evolve with a new generation of chefs making it an incredible place to eat.

No matter what time of year you visit Lafayette they will have something for you to celebrate. Whether your passion is for their rich cultural history, the bustling culinary scene or distinctive blend of Cajun and Zydeco music, you can be sure you will leave with a smile on your face.  For more information check out Visit Lafayette Travel
