Red Dress Run

World's most unique running event

The second Saturday of August brings a wave of red to the town of purple and green. New Orleans plays host to this annual charity 'run' that brings everyone's best red dress out of the closet. 

More of a dancing and drinking event than a race, the streets of NOLA run red with happy folks of the LGBTQ+ community. Live music and lunch are served up to all participants (must be 21+) and we promise that you will have an incredible time! 



Where
Starts at Crescent Park

When
