Downtown Rising is gearing up to mark its 5th anniversary in a grand style, spotlighting Lafayette's own Marc Broussard. The event, set to take place at Parc International on Friday, September 27th, 2024, will honor 20 years since the release of Broussard's debut album, “Carencro,” named after the place right outside of Lafayette where he grew up.

Doors will swing open at 5 pm for a night that will be a journey through 20 years of melodies, memories, and that magic that comes together when one of our own comes home to share the stage with the rest of our local talent. Speaking of that talent, Downtown Rising a line-up that features the North Mississippi Allstars, Lost Bayou Ramblers, DJ Digital, and RV—a little bit of something for everyone.

Another highlight of the night will be the secret Downtown Rising After-Party. Presented by Fete du Void, the after-party promises an exclusive performance by The Iceman Special, adding an extra layer of exclusive excitement to the festivities.

Early Riser Tickets are currently on sale, offering a range of options from General Admission to Super VIP and even Corporate Ticket Bundles. With a special nod to the coveted Secret After-Party, attendees are encouraged to secure their spots swiftly before the ticket prices go up. For those who join in on the fun at the last minute, a limited number of tickets will be available at the gate.

Downtown Rising is an event presented by Lafayette Roofing & General Contractors and produced by Social Entertainment Productions. Other partners such as Downtown Lafayette, Nous Wave Media, Festival International, Townsquare Media, and several others have played a role in bringing this event to life.

As we count down to September 27th, the anticipation is already building for one of the year's premier events, celebrating one of our greatest musical exports as Marc Broussard will certainly bring 'Carencro' to Lafayette for one night only.
