Special Occasions

Fair Grounds Race Course will be delighted that you are considering us to be a part of your once in a lifetime event.  With grounds fit for even the most special of occasions, Fair Grounds would consider it a privilege to share in any big day.

Since 1872, Fair Grounds Race Course has been a part of the cultural fabric of this wonderful city.  As a truly unique venue, Fair Grounds offers a fresh variety of accommodations in the most spirited city of America.  With floor to ceiling picturesque windows overlooking the cityscape, the Club House offers an expansive “room with a view.”  Looking for a more truly unique environment? Then the Paddock may be more to your liking.  Host your ceremony or reception in the Paddock and you will be among the many greats in history that have paraded around this historic site.

We take every element of your event and personalize it, making it uniquely yours.  Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Group Sales at (504) 948-1285. 

Thank you for considering Fair Grounds, and we look forward to the opportunity to Win, Place and Show your family, friends or colleagues to an event to remember!
