The This Is Home Festival is coming to Lake Charles this May and takes place in downtown Lake Charles.

The festival will take place at 1001 Ryan Street between Iris and Kirby Streets right in front of Historic 1911 City Hall. It's going to be at the same location where Downtown At Sundown takes place every year.

The Mission of This is Home Fest is to enhance the unique quality of life in Southwest Louisiana by sharing music and culture that celebrate local and global artistry.


The festival will promote our rich culture by presenting the area’s finest musicians along with national touring acts in a family-friendly outdoor setting.


Proceeds from the festival benefit The SWLA Arts Council and other local non-profits. This Is Home Festival is free and open to the public.
