SOUTHER HERITAGE CLASSIC 2015

 27th Southern Heritage Classic  September 8-10, 2016 

THE FUN NEVER STOPS

Tickets are already on sale for Southern Heritage Classic 2016.  The theme for this event filled weekend is “The Fun Never Stops.” 

“We hope to repeat the nice weather of last year and bring out even more fans. The Classic is dedicated to presenting quality events that allow people to enjoy themselves while supporting these two wonderful universities and the local economy. It’s not uncommon for some of the events to sell out so the earlier individuals purchase their tickets the better,” said Jones.

For those in need of a place to stay, the 2016 host hotel is the Sheraton Memphis Downtown. For a listing of other suggested hotels, visit www.southernheritageclassic.com/events/hotels. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of their special SHC rates.
