San Fermin in Nueva Orleans

Which is more dangerous? Loose bulls or rollergirls loose in the French Quarter? Dress in white, tie a piece of red cloth around your neck and waist, say a prayer to Saint Fermin and find out!

Archbishop Pummel

Embrace Spain’s 41-year rule over New Orleans! Over a dozen of the Big Easy Rollergirls will be guest bulls in the first ever San Fermin in Nueva Orleans on Saturday, July 7th. Watch out for our rollergirls wearing horns on their helmts and wielding wiffle ball bats. They will hit the runners as they try to make their way past our deadly rollergirls!

The Bull Run will take place at 8AM in the French Quarter, the same day that the original Spanish event occurs in Pamplona.

The festivities begin at 7AM at The Three Legged Dog Bar (400 Burgundy) on the corner of Burgundy and Conti in the French Quarter. There will be Spanish Wines available to enhance your “valor” before your run with the BERG Bulls. The run ends at the Sidebar (620 Conti) on the corner of Conti Street and Exchange Alley.

Your reward for surviving (IF you manage to make it) our Roller skating “Toros?” A block party with multiple DJs, Spanish Wines and Sangria!

Why you ask?

Come out and enjoy the fun!
