Spend an unforgettable afternoon in the French Quarter pursuing clues and testing your knowledge of all things Southern culture – music, art, literature and fashion— in this exhilarating, interactive scavenger hunt adventure!


From the starting gun's craze to the Quarter's beignets, past contestants have found secret gardens and galleries, touched ghosts and tarots, scored carts and body art, and serenaded our culture-filled city while sipping its finest concoctions. They sang karaoke, learned Russian history, and found the Saints. Recording studios! Movie stars! Anything can and will happen this year!

You don't want to miss this chance to test your knowledge of all things New Orleans - and win prizes!


Race participants will have an O-Mazing time while raising funds for an O-Mazing cause: the innovative programs presented by the Ogden Museum’s Kohlmeyer Circle. These art centric programs range from Southern inspired fashion shows to family friendly playdays—all of which strengthen the impact of the Ogden Museum’s mission to collect, conserve, and enhance the very important Art of the American South. Please learn more about the Kohlmeyer Circle’s past programs here.
