The Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive is a five-day event. Over 300 rodeo steers are driven from north of Reno, near the California state line, to the rodeo grounds in downtown Reno. During the five days, a record 65 guests will travel 100 miles through Northern Nevada terrain and will traverse 2,300 acres. There are eight, 1800’s style wagons traveling alongside the herd to carry the guests’ luggage and supplies. During the Drive, the chuckwagon crew will serve over 750 pounds of meat, 100 gallons of strong, cowboy coffee and 50 dozen eggs. This year, 45 guests will join the crew of 35 volunteers for the Drive. Guests pay over $1600 plus travel costs and reserve their place on the drive up to 2 years in advance. Over the past 15 years, guests have joined us from Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Canada, and oh yes, New York!
