The Bayou Classic announces its Bayou Classic Roadshow schedule of events beginning Sept. 1 and continuing until Nov. 10, bringing a taste of The Bayou Classic experience to Grambling and Southern fans across the south.

The Bayou Classic Roadshow will partner with the US Marine Corps for the first time this year. The sponsorship of The Bayou Classic Roadshow is an extension of the US Marine Corps’ 10-year partnership with The Bayou Classic.

“The partnership between the US Marine Corps and The Bayou Classic Roadshow is a recent development that will bring much benefit to our organization,” said Lieutenant Colonel Ronald Peterson, Chief of Staff, Marine Corps Recruiting Command. “The expansion of our partnership with The Bayou Classic has a direct connection to the success of the partnership over the past 10 years. The Roadshow is a tremendous opportunity for us to meet and visit with members of our community throughout the region.”

The Bayou Classic Roadshow presented by the US Marine Corps will travel to five states this year, including Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia, to give fans across the south an opportunity to win prizes, meet former Bayou Classic participants and share their favorite Bayou Classic experiences.
