The Grand Prix coincides with this year’s French Quarter Fest, making the weekend of April 10 an especially exciting one in the city. The event runs April 10 – 12 from 8 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. with a variety of races taking place on all three days. For a complete schedule, visit the Grand Prix of Louisiana website.
