WHO WE ARE:
The Al Berard Music Festival is a fundraising event for the Al Berard Memorial Music Fund at Community Foundation of Acadiana (CFA). The fund directly supports Acadiana’s unique musical culture by providing instruments, master teachers, and music scholarships to students of all ages. We also support community based organizations that support our rich culture. The fund honors the late Al Berard, who was a mentor for music lovers everywhere. His passion was to teach everyone about his love for music and the Cajun/Creole culture in which he lived. Through this fund his passion lives on today.
