We announced last week that we’re bringing back the Hayride events that were forced into more than a year’s hiatus by the COVID-19 pandemic and the government-mandated lockdowns, starting with a dinner set for May 26 in Baton Rouge.
Today, we are very pleased to announce the speakers for that event.
Along with Hayride publisher Scott McKay, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry will headline the event, discussing a myriad of actions his office is taking to fight federal overreach and its deleterious effects on the state. Also appearing is Mark Zelden, a Baton Rouge native who spent four years as a senior Trump administration official. Zelden, a long-time conservative activist and congressional staffer, has a very interesting story to tell about efforts to drain the DC swamp over the previous four years.
The event will be held at the headquarters of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry, located at 500 Main Street in downtown Baton Rouge. It will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, with dinner and the program beginning at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $50, and included in the ticket price is a one-year premium subscription to The Speakeasy, our new mobile app which, among other things, allows for ad-free viewing of Hayride content.
Table sponsorships are $1100. They include space for eight guests.
It’s been a miserably long time since we’ve been able to offer Hayride events to our readers, and we’re ecstatic to have them available to you again. The Baton Rouge event isn’t the only one we’ll do this year, though plans for future events are not yet set.

We’ll see you in downtown Baton Rouge on May 26!
