Reno is Artown – Your Guide to Artown 2022

Reno is so many things – a snowy winter wonderland and a relaxing summer getaway. A host to the Reno Rodeo, Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations, and many other uniquely Reno events. In July, Reno transforms into a full-fledged celebration of arts and culture, because among many things, Reno is Artown. This year, Artown’s headliner events will be taking place at Bartley Ranch Regional Park, with a variety of additional events happening at venues around Reno and Sparks. Here is just a sample of the many events happening throughout the month. We invite you to check out Artown’s complete calendar and experience all the event has to offer.
