Sporting Events & Tournaments

With multiple different venues across the parish, Southwest Louisiana is the go-to place for any sporting or athletic event. Between high school state championships, pro sporting events, and recreational, youth, and collegiate events at McNeese State University, Lake Charles has experienced it all as an elite destination for all things sports! Not to mention the assortment of other local events like 5ks, bicycle races, golf tournaments, and mud runs that Lake Charles hosts as well. Here, you'll find the upcoming schedule of sporting events open to spectators in Southwest Louisiana.
