With summer coming to a close and fall right around the corner, you can feel the change of seasons in the air. In Baton Rouge, that means college football season is here. Every year, hundreds of thousands of fanatic football fans descend on Baton Rouge to cheer on our beloved Tigers and Jaguars.

Baton Rouge was recently ranked as the country’s fifth-happiest city, and you can be certain attending home football games and tailgating had a great deal to do with our showing. There is no better way to spend a Saturday night than cheering on our home team.

Baton Rouge is a welcoming community. We take every opportunity to roll out the red carpet and show our guests a good time, especially for fans from the opposing team. We are legendary in our hospitality and tailgating traditions.

Help us show off Baton Rouge. Be sure to extend a warm welcome both inside and outside the stadium. During football season, there’s never been a better time to showcase our home.

Go Jags and Geaux Tigers!
