AcA is a wonderful venue for live music. The visual art exhibits are fantastic and exciting. If you are luck enough to catch it open on Art Walk you will not be disappointed with the vibrancy of the downtown life at the AcA.

The director, Herr Prof. Dr. Gerd Wuestemann has very eclectic tastes in music. He is partly responsible for the incredible variety of performers that are brought to the stage. Because of the limited seating, the tickets are sometimes a bit pricey for some of the more incredible performers.

This place is a wonderful addition to downtown Lafayette and a contribution to a lively artistic community. We have been to a couple of music shows at The Acadiana Center for the Arts and really enjoyed the acoustics while being close enough to the stage in any seat to really see the show. We recommend this venue to anyone...local or... More

We attend performances at ACA several times a year. There is not a bad seat in the house, the acoustics are wonderful, a very intimate setting.

After savouring Pop's po boy, there is only one option, and that is to walk it off.... and so we did along the quaint, tree-lined streets of downtown lafayette. The glass-fronted Arcadia for the Arts champions works by local artists and schedules regular theatre, jazz and dance performances. The mood is intimate and artistically delicious, a zydeco band performing added... More

At the heart of downtown Lafayette, a great place to experience an array of musical performances. Beautiful art exhibits, quaint coffee shop with seating area to chat before a show or during intermission. A lovely place!

Very nice venue for local or visiting art exhibits as well as small plays, music or comedic acts or other entertainment venues. Very well designed and maintained. Small auditorium gives everyone a stage front seat for entertainment shows. I've been to plays, comedy acts, band performances as well as speaking events in the auditorium and have never had a bad...

I have attended many events at Acadiana Center for the Arts. The place has a very intimate feel to it and sound is wonderful. I love particularly their Crossroads events where they take, say, a Cajun or Zyedco band and pair it for a concert with a Tex-Mex or Jazz group. I have also taken my grandchildren to several family... More

This is the main cultural centre in Lafayette. I have seen here great concerts like the one of Chick Corea, and many more great events. Also on one Sunday every month, about, they project live an Opera from the New York Opera Theater. And there are many artistic events through the entire year. Really a great place. And they even...

If you are in the Lafayette area on the second Saturday of the month, ArtWalk is going on downtown, and the ACA is a great place to see some neat artwork and really experience the art diversity in downtown Lafayette. There's also a little cafe right when you walk in for anyone going any other time of day.
