Big Bass Fishing Rodeo and Fishtival

Since 1946

In 2015, New Orleans City Park will host its 68 annual Big Bass Rodeo & Fishtival and Boats on the Bayou, the oldest freshwater fishing rodeo in the country. Last year over 500 anglers sought largemouth bass and other species hoping to earn bragging rights and a trophy. Unlike high caliber bass fishing tournaments, this nonprofessional rodeo provides fishing categories and activities for all ages and is a great time to enjoy springtime in the Park.
