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 show is Mason Ramsey, aka, "The Singing Walmart Boy."

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

Organizers joined Acadiana's Morning News for a preview of the big show.

Pre-sale tickets are available at for $20. Tickets for children 10 and under may be purchased at the gate for $5. Tickets prices include all-day access.

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.
