The 63rd Annual Kiwanis Football Jamboree is expanding greatly to accommodate more teams and fans. Following tradition, the Kiwanis Football Jamboree will be played two nights in late August, but the slate of football games scheduled will exceed all previous years. The event will be held at two separate stadiums each night to accommodate the 22 select and public school teams participating, up from 12 teams in previous years.
The Kiwanis Football Jamboree is the most prominent high school jamboree in the state, and this year's expanded lineup ensures it will be the best yet.
The Jamboree kicks off Thursday, August 28 at Clark Field and Teurlings High School. Games scheduled for Friday, August 28 will take place at Carencro High School and Teurlings High School. The action on both nights will start at 6:00 p.m.

Every year this event is a great community attraction and a major fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club of Lafayette. The Kiwanis Club of Opelousas has joined forces with the local club to plan this year's larger event. All of the proceeds from the Jamboree will go toward Kiwanis Service Projects to benefit the children of the Acadiana area.
