For the entire month of July, Reno is Artown! It’s regarded as one of the most comprehensive arts festivals in the country by the National Endowment for the Arts. Embraced by the community since 1996, this festival features over 500 multidisciplinary activities including music, dance, theater, visual arts, workshops, art walks and much more. Offering a majority of events free to the public, Artown invests in bringing artists of the highest caliber to Reno while showcasing Reno’s own local talent.
Reno is building a reputation as a true arts destination. With more than 100 murals in Midtown, sculpture gardens in downtown Reno and several museums throughout the area, visitors and residents can experience the magic of art. There are various events throughout the year that highlight the Reno Tahoe’s arts and culture and in particular, Reno’s art community comes alive during July for Artown!
