Summer is back! On June 12-13, downtown Reno is going to be action-packed with a two-day festival kicking off refreshing summer fun in Reno Tahoe. The annual Reno River Festival has events for just about anyone and fun for everyone. While this year’s event looks a bit different without kayaking competitions, it’s still going to be the place to be if you’re looking to get in the mood for summer and events season.
Even though there won’t be kayakers competing, you can still harness that competitive energy and adrenaline at the Reno Tahoe Adventure Park. There will be a variety of obstacles, rides, games and challenges such as the Mega Rock Wall, 30′ bungee jumping, balloon rides, a swinging pirate ship and much more!
There is nothing like sipping a good beer while enjoying the sunshine, music and views of the beautiful Truckee River. Your Craft Beer Tour ticket gets you entry into the Reno River Festival plus 14 generous samples of your choice and a full beer from the Craft Beer Tour Map.
Get bubbly! New this year is the Hard Seltzer Tour since hot summer days are best paired with a tasty and refreshing bubbly beverage. Your ticket includes admission plus 14 samples of your choice and a full seltzer to sip on while enjoying the festival.
All the best parties are better when you add a little bit (or a lot) of mouthwatering food. At Reno River Festival’s Street Eats, vendors from around Reno and Sparks will be serving up their tastiest menu items – gourmet burgers, Korean BBQ, ice cream, donuts, custom craft sodas and more.
Nearly 100 local shops will offer something for everyone, from handmade crafts to popular retail items. Grab a drink and snack, and take a leisurely stroll through Vendor Village to find the perfect gift for yourself or someone else.
Sunshine and live music, it’s a perfect combination. At this year’s event, local artists will be featured all weekend during MusicFest at the Reno River Festival with singer/songwriters and bands taking the stage at the Wingfield Amphitheater. This is the place to hear some of the brightest music stars and perhaps discover a new favorite.
Stay near the action! Several downtown hotels – Circus Circus, Silver Legacy and Sands Regency – are offering special room rates for Reno River Festival attendees.
