While out catching the sights of Festival with the little ones, let us make your experience more comfortable to feed your baby and put dad on diaper duty.

Moms and dads planning must-sees at Festival International this year take note: For the very first time in festival history, there is a special tent just for you and your little ones. No more ducking into dark alleys, stooping on the curb or changing dirty diapers in your car, ladies; IND Monthly/INDfamily has you covered.

IND Monthly is providing a clean, quiet area, away from the hustle and bustle of the festival crowd where moms of babies and small children can stop, take a break and recharge their little ones. The tent will offer side flaps to provide added privacy for breast-feeding moms, and those with other needs will rejoice with an area to change diapers and control toddler meltdowns after they are denied joining on-stage performers as back-up dancers.

The tent will welcome families Friday, April 26, from 5-7 p.m., and Saturday, April 27, and Sunday, April 28, from 12-5 p.m. The tent will be located on Jefferson Street directly across from Scene Lafayette General Fais Do Do and behind Le Centre International building.
