Lafayette’s 50th Anniversary Celebration!


Get ready to celebrate Lafayette’s 50th Anniversary! Founded in 1848, the City of Lafayette was incorporated in 1968. Come pay tribute to 50 years of incorporation on Sunday, July 29, at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center and along Golden Gate Way. The festivities will begin at 2:30 pm, in the Community Hall, and will include a reception honoring early City Council members, mayors and businesses that have operated in Lafayette for 50 years or more, as well as longtime residents who have lived in Lafayette for 50 years or longer.

The main event is from 4pm - 7pm, and will include a special Back Forty Texas BBQ dinner along with entertainment from Dave Martin’s House Party band, a kid zone with games and activities and a parade at 5pm. There will also be historical displays with Town Hall actors in costume, community organizations with tables and something for everyone. Don’t forget to bring something to put into the time capsule to be opened in 2068! In the meantime, take a historic tour of Lafayette here. For more about Lafayette's history, visit the Lafayette Historical Society.

Don’t miss this very special party. The event is free and there are special discounted dinner tickets for the first 1,000 Lafayette residents who sign up!
