Festival International Announces Delta Media Telethon

Lafayette, LA – Festival International de Louisiane and Delta Media are partnering together for the first ever Téléthon du Festival. The evening will be packed with diverse activities, live music, an on-air auction, and will showcase memories that take you back to the beginning of Festival International. We will be sharing historical Festival video compilations from the eighties up until today and will feature appearances from past presidents and founding members as we reflect on the magic and evolution of Festival International. Executive Director of Festival, Scott Feehan, says “We are really excited about this event and hope everyone will tune in and take part. It is amazing to look back on the history of Festival and see the impact it has on our community.”
Live music performances by local favorites include Zachary Richard, Sweet Cecilia, and Feufollet Trio. Donations, auction items, and special VIP packaging are all up for bid and sale during the event. There will be extremely rare items up for bid such as a framed print of the original poster from year one, various framed posters from throughout the years, and vintage pins.
This special event is dedicated to raising money for Festival 2018’s Amis du Festival campaign. Viewers can tune in and take part as a sponsor for Festival International on February 26, 2018 from 6:00-10:00 PM on KDCG TV. Visit www.festivalinternational.org/telethon to learn more.
