Enjoy Some Food Festivals


The Lafayette Oatmeal Festival happens every year in the middle to the end of January. It starts with a filling hot oatmeal breakfast, followed by an invigorating 5K walk/run and finally, there are two Ninja Warrior courses where people of all ages can join in. Arrive early as the number of available parking spaces is limited.


Ah, Easter. Lafayette holds its annual Easter Egg Hunt at Waneka Lake Park for children from 1 to 8 years of age. It is hosted by the Lafayette Recreation Department and it is free. It starts at 10:00 a.m. sharp and families are encouraged to walk or bike to the park since parking is limited.

Do you absolutely love peaches, or are willing to try peaches? Then the Lafayette Peach Festival is for you. It is held mid to late August. There will be peach cobblers and peach pies available in limited quantities, as well as peach smoothies. Aside from peaches, there are other foods being served, such as burgers, gyros, and turkey legs.

Relax to Music

Summer concerts are fun. Summer concerts held at the local park are better, but a free summer concert held at the local park is one of the best things ever. The city of Lafayette holds a free one day concert in mid-July at Waneka Lake and local musicians are invited to play. Since parking is limited, it is usually best to walk, bike, or use a motorcycle to the park.

Stay Physically Fit

Are you someone who loves hiking and science fiction? If so, the following hiking adventure is for you. Invaders From Planet 9 is a play performed along a 2-mile hike by a group of college students. The tale of laughter and terror is performed from September 15 to October 28. 

Get Some Sleep

If you are riding through the area and you need a place to sleep for the night, why not check out Udder Joy And Milkiness? There, guest can set up their tent in a goat pasture and interact with goats, pigs, alpacas, and more! Or, if sleeping under the stars with no Wi-Fi and friendly goats isn’t your thing, why not check out available lodging in Lafayette.

There are plenty of things to do in Lafayette and the surrounding areas, and even a few things that you normally wouldn’t try. Where else are you going to be able to grab a bowl of oatmeal, eat a peach, and be entertained by an alien invasion while on a hiking trip?
