Visit Baton Rouge's Social Media Ambassador Program


What is #KrewedeRouge?

Krewe de Rouge is a group of local influencers passionate about Louisiana’s Capital City of Baton Rouge and talking about it on social media. The team works with Visit Baton Rouge as social media ambassadors to cover events and happenings around Baton Rouge through their own personal social media platforms and promote the city.

Much like the #KrewedeCrown that helped to cover the 2014 and 2015 Miss USA Pageants hosted in Baton Rouge, #KrewedeRouge ambassadors will gain access to events and share “behind-the-scenes style” social media coverage through posts, pictures, videos and other interesting content.
