_ The 2021 Running of the Bulls:

Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 9:00 am. Join with us for the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Festival of San Fermin - the patron Saint of Pamplona  Spain.   This annual event, made famous by author Earnest Hemingway, has participants chased by angry horned bulls. The Pensacola Encierro features the Pensacola Roller Gurlz as the “Bulls and Ghouls".   As the first canon is set off at 9:00 a.m. the runners will take to the roughly one-mile course.  At the second canon blast the Bulls will be released, wielding Wiffle bats, to chase down the participants.  As is customary in Pamplona runners are requested to wear all white with red kerchiefs or sashes.

New this year, as a kick-off to "Hallo-month", is the Children's Activity Area in the side Parking Lot at Seville Quarter.  Dress up the kids and visit the free "Little Ghouls Kid's Area." USO volunteers will be on hand with candy, activities, refreshments, and a costume contest. Our wonderful USO volunteers will be supervising kid's activities and the BULLS will be on hand for photographs with the "little ghouls".  

Following the Running of the Bulls the festival will continue in Phineas Phogg's Dance Club in Seville Quarter with Latin entertainment; beverages and food for purchase. Prizes will be awarded to the Best Group, Best Horns (roller derby bulls), Best Senor, Best Senorita, Most outlandish costume and the Viva! Spirit Award.

On-sight registration and packet pick-up will be Friday, October 1 from 4 to 7 pm and Saturday, October 2 from 7 to 8:30 am at Seville Quarter, 130 East Government Street, Pensacola 32502.  Shirts and bandanas are not guaranteed to late registered participants.  They will be distributed on a "first come" basis as supplies last.

The Running of the Bulls is proud to partner with the USO of Northwest Florida to provide servicemen and women with support, snacks, meals, and assistance with staying in touch with their loved ones.  Many of whom are away from home for the first time.

The USO creates and maintains strong connections between service members and their families, homes, and country, no matter where they serve. The USO expresses America’s gratitude and commitment to service members and their families through programs focused on connection, strengthening, wellness and resiliency. USO Northwest Florida has four centers and serves twelve bases in our area. Last year, more than 220,000 military members were served in USO centers and another 190,000 through outreach programs. This would not be possible without fundraising events like Running of the Bulls.
