Running of the Bulls - New Orleans Style

Please come join us for a great photo opportunity.... AGAIN!

El Encierro: The Running of the Bulls

See last year's photos here:

The first ever Encierro (bull run) of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans took place on Saturday, July 7th 2007 at 8am in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the same day the original Spanish event took place in Pamplona. Close to 200 participants arrived on that fateful day, and were promptly chased and "gored" by 14 "RollerBulls". Since then the festival has grown exponentially, with well over 10,000 runners and over 350 RollerBulls flooding the streets in 2011!

The Encierro of 2013 is scheduled for Saturday July 13 at precisely 8am.

The event will replicate and pay homage to the world famous Encierro of Pamplona, Spain, aka The Running of the Bulls, only our bulls are members of New Orleans’ all-female flat-track derby team the Big Easy Rollergirls and select participants from other rollerderby leagues across the country!

There will be a special guest appearance by New Orleans' own Rolling Elvi!

At precisely 8am the run will begin.

    Do I need to wear red and white if I am not running?

      You don't have to but it's part of the fun. You'll stand out if you don't and I promise you'll have a much better time if you do.

    typically .. look for a large group of people with big nerdy cameras.. this is a huge event.. or has a huge crowd.. so it might be a little harder. i'm sure the leader or creator will have a meeting spot designated by the time the event comes around.

    Looks like the rain will hold off in the morning. The weather is suppose to be partly cloudy in the morning with an increasing chance of rain by early afternoon.

    This is my first as well. How do we identify each other? Do we get to use secret signs? :)

    This will be my first time. Which ticket should I get. Drinking in the morning is not my thing.

    Last Year I went to Running of the Bulls and had a great time with all the characters. A lot of personal design. Fun and fast moving it begins.

  • Jerry P.

    I wonder if this is going to be as much fun shooting compare to the Zombie Run?

    June 23, 2013

    • Bryan

      This was a lot of fun last year... Not sure if it can be compared to the Zombie Run... Different animal? :-)
