Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center

Don’t be fooled by the name – the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center (RSLEC) is home base for a list of prestigious equine and rodeo events, including the nationally televised Reno Rodeo. The RSLEC is a favorite venue for youth and collegiate sporting competitions, motocross and national monster truck events, and there are also an amazing variety of consumer-based shows that take place at our venue, featuring everything from antiques, craft shows, trains and cars to RV and boat sales.

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is a fitting venue for a variety of events, even those that don’t feature four-legged creatures.

About the Venue

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is situated on 43 acres of land located a few minutes from downtown Reno, easy driving distance to thousands of hotel rooms and 10 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The building features two indoor and two outdoor arenas, 3,100 paved and lighted parking spaces, and 660 10-by-12-foot animal stalls.

The climate-controlled main arena has seating for 6,200 people, three show offices, and a 150-by-300-foot dirt-floor arena.

The Livestock Pavilion, connected to the main arena via a tunnel, comprises a 1,000-seat arena or auction area, a 100-by-125-foot covered cutting area and a 90-by-200-foot outdoor arena.

Overlooking the main arena, Doc Bar, the venue’s VIP lounge, houses a private office and men’s and women’s restrooms. It can hold 250 people and offers partial or full catering service, which will enhance your group’s visit to the venue. Please note: Doc Bar is not ADA compliant and requires walking up stairs.

Showcased on millions of TV screens around the world during the Reno Rodeo, the RSLEC rodeo arena has 9,491 seats, plus viewing suites and a 325-by-170-foot dirt floor arena.

For livestock events, the RSLEC has 19 barns on the property in addition to the stalls, convenient wash racks for horses, 216 multi-use stalls and 266 exhibitor truck and trailer spaces. For event participants, we offer full and partial RV hookups, we also have an RV dump station on site.

A versatile space, the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center has also held large sporting events, such as Monster Jam, BMX Nationals, and the World of Wrestling Championships.
