Get Outside and Get in The Action with New Orleans Summer Festivals
Summer is a great time for engaging in new, exciting experiences with friends and family. Start your summer off right by attending one or more of the many great New Orleans festivals coming up soon! San Fermin en Nueva Orleans, or Running of the Bulls, will be taking place in the city from July 8th-10th. This wild spin on the classic festival from Spain involves runners that wear all white, and “bulls,” that are actually the New Orleans Big Easy Rollergirls! The Rollergirls chase after the runners through the streets, much like bulls, and can whack runners with a wiffle ball bat! These festivities begin early, usually before 8:00 AM- with drinks, food, and Latin music to get your blood pumping!
Get out there and get moving by partaking in the famous Red Dress run that will fill the city streets with vibrant shades of red on August 13th. This eccentric event is open to both men and women, and even doubles as a fundraiser for over 100 local charities! You can feel good about giving back to the community while enjoying unlimited beer, food and live music by The Topcats and The Mixed Nuts. You will see men and women in varying shades of red dresses of all styles, proudly parading through the French Quarter for the 22nd year while visitors come from near and far to cheer them on.

In addition to the Running of the Bulls and the Red Dress Run, there are many other great New Orleans festivals and events that will be taking place in the city this summer.
