Crescent City Classic COUNTDOWN:

Racefest General Info



The Michelob Ultra RaceFest

Held on Race Day from 8:30 am - 1:00 pm at the Festival Grounds 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. 

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 10 years or younger.  Friends and family can join you after the race for $15 ($20.00 on race day)  Fest passes can be purchased during Online Registration, at the Expo or on Race Day.  If you ordered a Fest pass online, you can pick this up during the Expo near Late Registration or at the Festival Tickets Tent on race day, in front of the Reunion Shelter entrance.
