Rentals & Catering

City Park offers two prime locations for staging sporting events, concerts and other large outdoor events.  Tad Gormley Stadium offers great versatility for staging events in New Orleans – from outdoor athletic competitions to concerts and corporate special events.

Location: 5400 Stadium Drive

Stadium features:

* 26,500 permanent seats
* 400-meter polyurethane track
* Artificial turf playing field
* Three locker rooms
* Press box with seating for 110; press suite seats 40
* Electronic scoreboard and state-of-the-art sound system

No mention of Tad Gormley Stadium is complete without acknowledging the enormous contributions of the Roosevelt administration during the Great Depression’s Work Progress Administration. The program employed more than 20,000 men and women across the country and spent $12 million in federal funds building roads, parks and other public spaces, including Tad Gormley Stadium.

Ongoing events in the stadium include football games, soccer matches and track events. In addition to hosting national touring musicians (including The Beatles!), the stadium was the site of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials (the 400-meter track was designed as a practice track for the trials) and serves as the terminus of the Crescent City Classic race.

For more information or to book this stadium for rental, e-mail Denise Joubert at or call her at (504)483-9363.
