Racefest General Info
The Michelob Ultra RaceFest
Held on Race Day from 8:30 am - 1:00 pm on the Practice Track in City Park.
Even at the first Classic in 1979, the founders realized you can't hold an event in New Orleans without music, food and drinks. Most of our participants see the concert, food and beverages as their reward for three months of training.
Over the years, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic's post-race festival has featured Grammy Winners, up-and-comers and some of the most notable names in New Orleans music. This year's live entertainment was Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes and The Dana Abbott Band! 2016 Entertainment will be announced in 2016.
Aside from the great music, food and refreshments, the RaceFest also features an award ceremony around 10:30 am for our Elite athletes and local winners, as well as a costume contest, which is fun for everyone to watch and participate in! Also, for kids (and adults) of all ages, our "Family Fun Zone" features an entire area designated for obstacle courses, inflatables, and a rock wall!
The RaceFest is free for runners and children 12 years or younger. Friends and family can join you after the race for $10. Fest passes can be purchased during Online Registration, at the Expo or on Race Day.
