Have been to several performances, there's not a bad seat in the house, very intimate setting. I look forward to going to more events at this venue.

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.

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...More
