You’re invited to meet the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales!

10th annual Horses, Hops & Cops

Wednesday, February 12, 2020
N.O.P.D. Stables in New Orleans City Park
1021 Harrison Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70124
3:30pm – 4:30pm VIP Experience (tickets required, limited quantity available)
5:00pm – 8:00pm General Admission (free for all ages)

When the Clydesdales come to New Orleans each year for their annual Carnival season visit, they dedicate an evening to support their fellow horses. Bring the entire family to view the Clydesdales up close, enjoy touring the N.O.P.D. stables, watch an equestrian soccer game featuring the N.O.P.D. Mounted Unit, take photos with horses, enjoy live entertainment, children’s activities, food, beverages, and craft vendors.

Proceeds benefit the N.O.P.D. Mounted Unit and their horse breeding program. In 2016, the New Orleans Police Department began an in-house horse breeding program to ensure a continual source of quality horses for the future. This program exists because of generous tax-deductible donations from individuals, organizations and corporations, as well as events like Horses, Hops and Cops.


Tickets ARE NOT REQUIRED to attend the event at 5:00pm. General admission is free for all ages from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Tickets are only required for the VIP Experience tour and Raffle.

VIP Experience guests will enjoy a one-hour guided tour to go behind the scenes with a Budweiser Clydesdale handler, learn about their unique horses, the breed, their special training, state-of-the-art transportation and more. The VIP Experience also includes a tour of the N.O.P.D. stables, insight to the “Born To Bred” horse breeding program, and an introduction to the newest N.O.P.D. yearlings. Each guest will receive a VIP gift bag filled with gift items and special offers. VIP Experience tickets are SOLD OUT.


The ticket site is also where we are selling raffle tickets for a chance to ride on the Budweiser Clydesdale wagon in a Mardi Gras parade (winner & guest must be 21 or older.) Raffle tickets are on sale now at Online raffle sales end on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 11:59pm. Additional tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
