El Encierro: The Running of the Bulls
San Fermin in Nueva Orleans (#SFNO2016) is our homage to the world famous Encierro of Pamplona, Spain, a.k.a. The Running of the Bulls. Instead of bovines, our bulls are actually RollerBulls played by skaters selected from roller derby leagues around the world including New Orleans’ all-female flat-track derby team the Big Easy Rollergirls! Join us, more than 18,000 runners and over 400 RollerBulls as we bring our version of Pamplona’s Fiesta to New Orleans!

REGISTRATION FOR RUNNING OF THE BULLS
Los Pastores created San Fermin in Nueva Orleans because we love to party, and we wanted to help worthy causes along the way. Thanks to you, San Fermin in Nueva Orleans is one of the fastest growing festivals in Louisiana and almost certainly the fastest growing summer festival in New Orleans.
Although participation in the encierro (Running of the Bulls) remains open to the public, we ask that you consider registering to enter the festival grounds of SFNO 2016. Your registration fees help us offset the rising production costs (permits, insurance, etc.) so that we have enough green to benefit our charities, which are Animal Rescue of New Orleans and Beth’s Friends Forever!
Several ticket packages are offered each year running the gamut from a basic entry ticket to a VIP experience. We’re in the process of sorting out the details for San Fermín in Nueva Orleans 2016. We’ll make lots of noise when we’ve got more to share.
