There will be live music from 12-3 p.m. – featuring New Orleans-based guitarist Vic Shepherd and Shreveport-native Tim Brogan. Shepherd currently has a guitarist residency at the famous New Orleans restaurant Commander’s Palace, while Brogan is a local and regional fiddle player.

Foundation members who wish to bring additional guests will be able to purchase extra tickets at Great Raft Brewing on the day of the event. Tickets will also be available to the general public at Great Raft Brewing on the day of the event. General public tickets come with three pounds of crawfish, corn and potatoes, and a bowl of jambalaya. The price of additional guests and public tickets will be determined at a later date before the Annual Crawfish Boil based on the price of crawfish at the time of the event.

Established in 1976, the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl™ is the nation’s 11th-oldest bowl game – with the 45th edition slated for the 2021 Bowl Season. Louisiana Tech recorded the first shutout in the game’s history with a 14-0 victory over Miami in the 44th Independence Bowl in 2019. The Independence Bowl Foundation announced a one-year extension with Radiance Technologies – ensuring they will be the title sponsor through 2025. The bowl’s conference and team agreements, as well as the television agreement, also run through the 2025 season. Army West Point and BYU are slated to matchup against a rotation of the Pac-12 Conference, American Athletic Conference and Conference USA, which will be televised on an ESPN network.

The Independence Bowl Foundation is prevalent in the Shreveport-Bossier City area throughout the year, hosting events to help enhance the economic impact and growth of our community. The Mission of the Independence Bowl is to attract and provide quality, nationally recognized football competition oriented to the Ark-La-Tex region.
