El Encierro: The Running of the Bulls
San Fermin in Nueva Orleans (#SFNO2013) 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 from New Orleans’ all-female flat-track derby team the Big Easy Rollergirls and skaters selected from other roller derby leagues across the continent!
Join us, more than 14,000 runners and over 400 RollerBulls as we bring our version of Pamplona’s Fiesta to New Orleans!

REGISTRATION FOR RUNNING OF THE BULLS IN NEW ORLEANS
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 2013. Your registration fees help us offset the rising production costs (permits, insurance, etc.) so that we have enough green to benefit our charities – Animal Rescue of New Orleans & the MS Society of Louisiana.
Several registration options are available. VIP includes gear, open bar, viewing deck, seating & private restrooms ($75). Patron is sold out
gets you in the door and gear ($25). And, Corredor gets you in the festival ($10)! Special thanks to the numerous out-of-town folks who’ve registered for the Corredor package as a donation to the festival. We wish you could make it.
VIP Option for Encierro
Before, during and after Saturday morning’s Encierro (BullRun) you can relax, cool off, and enjoy a premium open bar without missing out on any of the action.
The VIP section boasts a private deck overlooking the festival for prime viewing of the concert stage and procession of San Fermin. A limited amount of tickets are still available. Purchase them on Friday night during El Txupinazo before it sells out.
