Allstate Sugar Bowl
January 2, 2017
One of the greatest college football traditions takes place in New Orleans every year when the Sugar Bowl, the second oldest bowl game in the country, comes to town. As per tradition, this year’s AllState Sugar Bowl will host the SEC champion (unless otherwise involved in a national championship game) and another highly ranked opponent.
Since the game’s founding in the 1930s, the Sugar Bowl has been a key player in promoting amateur sports, engaging the community, and sparking economic growth. Many decades later, the event has morphed into a Louisiana New Years tradition, attracting large crowds and plenty of post-game festivities.
While the bowl game is the highlight of the New Year festivities, the AllState Sugar Bowl typically hosts a variety of other fun events, including:
- Fan Jam
- Fan Fest
- New Years' Eve Parade
- A prep football classic
- A swimming invitational
- A sailing regatta
- A basketball classic
- A pep rally
