Everything you need to know about the
Expo and your Registration
(Okay, maybe not everything, but the good stuff.)
The Red Dress Expo will be on Thursday, August 7th and Friday, August 8th at the Fairgrounds Clubhouse – 1151 Gentilly Blvd. It will be open from 4pm till 9pm each day.
You have to appear in person with ID to sign the waiver and pick up your bib, wristband and gimmees. Nobody can pick it up for you. You can also pick up registration materials the day of the event starting at 9 am at Armstrong Park. We really urge you to try to avoid day-of pickup because it is a major cluster funk.
If you have friends who haven’t registered they can do so at the Expo. We will be taking cash only, but there is an ATM machine on site.
Also at the Expo, you will be able to buy Hash attire, and we will have a vendor selling red dresses and accessories.
Registration is coming right along. All you need to do is click Registration and you will be on your way. Make sure you tell your friends so they can share all of the fun with you.
Registration is currently $60 and will slowly increase every month until day-of registration at $80. Hasher registration which is only available to active hashers is now at $80 and will go up to $100 for day-of registration.
What can we say. We hope you were with us and we’re sorry if you weren’t cause last year’s New Orleans Red Dress Event was the best one ever. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits. Dash Rip Rock and Cowboy Mouth rocked the French Quarter as right around 6000 of our friends enjoyed copious amounts of beer and great barbeque. But check it out. The 2014 Red Dress Event is going to be even better.
RED DRESS GRANTS
2013 Red Dress is now just a bunch of great memories, but it isn’t too soon to be searching for that perfect dress for this year. It will be here before you know it. Thanks to all of you we were able to give away more than $190,000 dollars in 2013 to more than 60 local charities. Let’s see if we can’t do even better this year. Encourage all of your friends to register, to be part of the real Red Dress event, and to support New Orleans while having a blast. Everyone needs to understand that just hanging in the Quarter in a dress is lame and anyone who does that is missing something truly great.
You must be 21 years of age on or before August 9, 2014 to participate – no exceptions – this is an adults only party.
Please share this with your friends. It takes more than just a red dress to be part of this party. You have to register to be able to enjoy the whole event – which includes great food, great bands, more beer than you can imagine, the Red Dress Run and everything else. And only by registering do you support the many New Orleans charities that this event supports – over 60 groups last year and more than $500,000 in the last three years.
You will notice that there are two registration options. The regular registration if for the Red Dress Event on Saturday. The Hasher registration also includes the Red Lingerie Run on Friday night, a special area on Saturday, and the Hangover Run on Sunday. The Hasher option is only available to verifiable hashers. Not a hasher yet and want to be? All you have to do is show up at your nearest local hash and start hashing. You have weeks and weeks before Red Dress to get involved. (See FAQ for more info on this.)
Come back and check on us from time to time. We’ll be adding more as we go along.
