We look forward to the return of Hopefest.


Postposed due to the pandemic: The 14th annual Hopefest is set for Saturday, March 21 at Parc International in downtown Lafayette and this year features a solid and diverse music lineup.

The headliner for this year's music festival is Mason Ramsey, aka, "The Singing Walmart Boy." You may recall the 13-year-old going viral with a video of him singing Hank Williams' "Love Sick Blues."

In addition to Ramsey, Hopefest features music from Brandon Heath, Mackenzie Bourg, Keith Frank, Elysian Fields, School of Rock and more.

Proceeds from this year's event will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Acadiana and the STM Options Program.

This family-oriented event will feature great food, family-friendly activities and of course, fantastic live music.

Hopefest is a unique festival led by teens at St Thomas More High and supported by hundreds of local businesses. To date, it has raised close to $1,000,000 for local charities and seen over 1,000 teenagers volunteer to help those most in need in our community.
