UPDATE - 

Patty in the Parc, scheduled for this Saturday in Downtown Lafayette, has been cancelled due to the growing concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus). The safety and health of our guests, staff and the community is our top priority and was a large part of making this tough decision. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

Tickets purchased online will be refunded automatically through the Eventbrite app. Pre-sale tickets purchased in-person will also be refunded. Details on that refund process will be announced in the near future.

St. Patrick's Day is coming up soon and there is only one place to be to celebrate and that's downtown Lafayette for the annual Patty in the Parc, presented by Corona Hard Seltzer and Babe: Wine in a Can.

There are a few things know to know before you go, so we figured putting together this handy-dandy guide would be a big help.

Or, if you have a question that is not answered with the answer below, feel free to email dawn.stoot@townsquaremedia.com. (She is kind of like the guru for all things Patty in the Parc.)
