Group Sales

Since 1852, Fair Grounds Race Course has been a part of the cultural fabric of this wonderful city. With great pleasure, we offer our considerable experience, southern hospitality and unique facilities to make your occasion truly memorable.

Whether it's a group for "A Day at the Races" to watch live racing in the Clubhouse or Suite, a party in the Black Gold Room, a meeting or an evening party, Fair Grounds is the perfect setting to host your next event. Our strength is flexibility--we can provide settings that range from elegant to casual, reception-style to sit-down, with a view of the racetrack or downtown New Orleans.

We have a variety of options available for your group to enjoy a fun day at the races.  From a box rental to a party of 400, we have you covered with the best amenities, entertainment and offerings around. Please view our Grandstand Box and Clubhouse Box offerings here. To secure your box please contact us at the phone number or email listed below.

To enjoy a day of live racing for groups of 25 or more at Fair Grounds, request our Group Sales Brochure and Win, Place and Show your guests an afternoon to remember. Call or email our team to request venue information and determine the best option for your function.  Download a sales kit today for detailed information about our property.
