Love of People Nonprofit is happy to join forces with the Acadiana Center for the Arts in bringing the community the second ever Zeno Fest on November 27th, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the ACA. Zeno Fest began in 2019 to help raise money for Grammy Award Winning Bass Player, Lee Allen Zeno who was battling cancer at the time. Now, Zeno Fest is a way to honor and highlight some of the best musicians in South Louisiana through an annual concert. While Lee Allen Zeno is now cancer free, his legacy will forever be cemented through this namesake concert.


This year’s lineup includes: Steve Adams, Marcia Ball, Keith Blair, Ray Boudreaux, Teka Briscoe, The Doopsie Brothers, Gerard Delafose, Arsene DeLay, Grant Dermody, Tony Goulas, Gerald Gruenig, Sonny Landreth, Sasha Massey, Jill Butler, Ethan Mould, Michael Juan Nunez, Jason Parfait, Pablo Pellerin, Lloyd Richard, Roddie Romero, Sarah Russo, Beau Thomas, Sharona Thomas, Gino Vallecillo, Ryan Vicknair, Charlie Wooton, and Lee Allen Zeno.


“Zeno Fest is the ultimate showcase of musical talent that we are blessed with in Acadiana,” says Love of People Executive Director, John Williams, “Zeno Fest is relevant to Acadiana because it creates an opportunity for our community to celebrate and support our Living Legends.”


Thank you to our sponsors, Quality of Life Services, Rader, Social Entertainment and Pink Trailer Productions for not only supporting our established musicians, but also for helping to ensure that the next generation of musicians have the resources to be successful.

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
