Loyal Blue Weekends

Friday, Sep 6, 2019 - Sunday, Sep 8, 2019Downtown Ruston, 101 E Park Ave, Ruston, LA 71270

There are few things Lincoln Parish loves more than football season! For Louisiana Tech’s 201 football season, Ruston will host to six gameday experiences for locals and visitors alike – Loyal Blue Weekends!

Loyal Blue Weekends will consist of Rock the Railroad in Downtown Ruston on Friday nights before home games. Starting at 6:00 p.m. in Downtown Ruston, come out to Railroad Park for a food, brews, late night pep rally, a free outdoor concert!

The activities continue Saturday with fans taking advantage of downtown shopping and dining prior to kick-off. Locals and visitors alike can avoid game day traffic by parking downtown. Shuttle services will be provided from Downtown Ruston to Joe Aillet Stadium and back again, running continuously starting 5 hours prior to kick-off and one hour until after the game ends. Enjoy tailgating in Bulldog Village as the community gears up to support the Louisiana Tech Football team!

End your weekend the right way on Sunday with Bulldog Brunch! Select local restaurants will be serving up classic items as well as twists on familiar favorites!
