Allstate® Fan Fest
The Allstate® Fan Fest returns for its 14th year to serve as the backdrop for pre-game events and celebrations leading up to the 2020 Allstate® Sugar Bowl®. As college football fans descended on New Orleans to see a premiere college football bowl game, the Crescent City came alive with a mix of activities, highlighted by free New Year’s Eve performances.
Immediately following the Allstate Sugar Bowl New Year’s Eve Parade, both Georgia and Baylor are expected to hold team pep rallies with the bands and cheerleaders in the Jax Brewery Parking Lot (418 North Peters Street).
Team Pep Rallies – Monday, December 31
Both schools participating in the 86th annual Allstate Sugar Bowl will hold official pep rallies as part of Allstate Fan Fest. Pep rally times are TBD.
