LAFAYETTE, La (KLFY)– Bring your dancing shoes, because Downtown Rising is back, returning to the Parc International stage on Nov. 11, according to a news release.

Gates will open at 5 p.m. and guests will enjoy the sounds of News Orleans’ Tank and the Bangas and Big Freeda, along with Lafayette’s own DJ Digital.

Downtown Rising 2020 featuring Cold War Kids was canceled due to the pandemic. Tickets previously bought for Downtown Rising 2020 will remain valid for Downtown Rising on Thursday, Nov. 11.

“Downtown Rising is an annual event that celebrates Downtown’s growth and development as the city center continues to rise, despite a challenging 18 months,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of the Downtown Development Authority and Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “Downtown Lafayette continues to grow business and is the heart where the community gathers, belongs, and celebrates. This event is about acknowledging Downtown’s wins and progress with a night of entertainment,” she continued.

As an outdoor, gated event, Downtown Rising will be at limited capacity and will follow all COVID-19 safety and state restrictions. Downtown Rising asks that any guests stay home if they are not feeling well.
