The Cajundome announced Wednesday that the current clear bag policy in place for Ragin’ Cajun sporting events has been extended to include all publicly ticketed events at the Cajundome & Convention Center.

The policy will go into effect on March 1.

The first major event to enforce the new policy will be the Jason Aldean concert on March 5.

According to a press release, the clear bag policy will aid in providing a quicker, smoother screening process for event guests. Ticket holders, including children, will be allowed to carry one approved clear bag, plus a small purse.

The following bags will be permitted inside the Cajundome & Convention Center and will be subject to searches:

  • Clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12” by 6” by 12”.
  • Clutch or small purse, with or without a strap, which does not exceed 6.5” by 4.5” x 1”.
  • Equipment bag for necessary medical items.
  • Diaper bag for age-appropriate children accompanied by an adult.

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, mesh bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size. Tinted or printed-pattern plastic bags will not be permitted.

Depending on the event/tour management, the Cajundome says the policy is subject to change. It will not apply to private events such as conventions, conferences, and weddings unless implemented by the event coordinator.
