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.
RV spots are available during events. To book an RV spot, fill out the form here.
