Hey MacKidAcadia fams, guess what's back!?

As a beloved fan of Renaissance fairs I have to say I was all too excited to learn of this event right here in our Acadia-St. Landry community! We had a blast last year and this year promises to be no less with even more vendors and entertainment. 

The Acadiana Renaissance Féte was created by a group of friends who shared a passion for creativity, human interaction, and being in the open air. We are so excited to announce its return for the 2nd year in the Village of Glane, a small area of land between Opelousas and Lawtell, for 2023!! The Renaissance Féte will take place over 5 weekends this year. 

Opening weekend is January 14-15! Each weekend will have a different theme for a fun-filled weekend of adventure. Themed costumes and dress up is encouraged! (Please dress appropriately)

Make plans to come and see the many various vendors, dancing and entertainment, and visit the Acadiana Wildlife’s Education Ambassadors tent!
