Starlight & Twilight Racing Series


Starlight Racing presented by Miller Lite and Blue Moon returns to New Orleans Friday, March 10 with a special 5 p.m. first post on Feb.10. Known locally as an exciting ‘see and be seen’ event, the event features live music in the clubhouse from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. by The Mixed Nuts, with DJ Crush providing music in the Miller Time Beer Garden from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Popular local food pop-ups Bratz Y'all & Frencheeze will serve food on the track apron.

General admission for Starlight Racing is $5, and admission to the Clubhouse and the Miller Time Beer Garden is $10.

The Starlight-Starbright charitable program will again be offered on all Starlight and Twilight Racing dates throughout the season, allowing non-profit and for-profit organizations to raise much needed funds for their own charitable organization or for one that their company supports in its efforts to touch the community.

Following approval and registration with the Fair Grounds, organizations may pre-sell or direct their membership and supporters to purchase tickets to the designated Starlight racing event through the Fair Grounds online ticketing system, www.fgno.com/tickets.  Based on surpassing the minimum of 25 pre-sold tickets per date, the organization then receives 50% of the admission cost ($5.00 per person) back in a rebate. 

Companies may register as an official Starlight-Starbright beneficiary by downloading the official information and registration form from www.fairgroundsracecourse.comand emailing it to Denece Laborde at Denece.Laborde@fgno.com. Additional information, including clubhouse reservations during fund raising is available by calling the property reservations line at (504) 943-2200.
