Signature Events

Camping World Stadium plays host to diverse programming throughout the year but there are four signature annual events celebrating a long history at the facility: Florida Blue Florida Classic, Russell Athletic Bowl, Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl and Monster Jam.

The Florida Blue Florida Classic is the nation’s largest Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) rivalry which takes place each year between the Florida A&M University Rattlers and the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats at the Camping World Stadium. This exciting match-up always takes place the Saturday preceding the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Russell Athletic Bowl takes place in late December each year and pits the #1 Atlantic Coast Conference team against the #2 Big 12 Conference teams (after the College Football Playoff series teams have been determined).

The Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl game (formerly the Capital One Bowl) takes place on December 31 and pits the #2 Southeastern Conference team against the #2 Big Ten Conference team (after the College Football Playoff series teams have been determined).

Monster Jam is the perfect sports and entertainment brand mixing racing, showmanship and the ultimate fan experience into one incredible, action-packed live show. Monster Jam electrifies crowds with breathtaking stunts and the awesome power of the world’s most popular Monster Jam trucks. Over 4 million fans fill the world’s premier stadiums and arenas to see the live spectacle with more than 350 performances each year. Unlike traditional sporting events or other family entertainment shows, every fan attending a Monster Jam event is given the unique opportunity to meet the stars of the show during the pre-show Party in the Pits and post-show autograph sessions. For decades, Monster Jam has been one of the biggest and most successful touring family shows in the world, and it is still showing yearly growth in all areas!
