Competition Details

Host City

Shreveport-Bossier City

Tucked away in northwest Louisiana, Shreveport and neighboring Bossier City are a mixture of the spicy Cajun attitude and wide-open Texas spirit. Visitors love the 24-hour gaming action, nightlife, shopping, museums, festivals, and famous Louisiana

cuisine. The new Shreveport Aquarium joins more than two dozen family attractions. The Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets, which offers shopping, restaurants, movie theater and carousel, has one of the most gorgeous view of the Red River.


Hirsch Memorial Coliseum

Located on the grounds of the State Fair of Louisiana, the Hirsch Memorial Coliseum seats 10,300 people. This historic arena, built in 1954, is home of the Shreveport

Mudbugs Hockey Team, rodeo, concerts and other year-round events. Phase one of renovations on the arena started in 2017 with other ongoing arena improvements.
