Downtown Alive returns this fall to Lafayette to see who’s playing

Popular music series Downtown Alive is back for Fall 2022. After a popular Spring episode, Downtown Lafayette Unlimited has brought back DTA for September and October.

After two years of virtual and canceled events, the band was eager to bring people back outside to celebrate Acadiana music and culture. Not only did they bring back the series, but they added two daytime concerts called Bach Lunch. These will bring music and food trucks downtown to brighten up your lunchtime.
