Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center

Reno Rodeo

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is also a great place to hold your convention or meeting. If you're looking for a unique location to hold a special session of your convention or show, we've got the perfect place for your event. Plan your own private rodeo or have a team building, steer decorating contest.

Don’t be fooled by the name the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center (RSLEC).  The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is a fitting venue for a variety of events, even those that don’t feature any four-legged creatures. Although the RSLEC is the home base for a list of prestigious equine and rodeo events, including the nationally televised Reno Rodeo, it also is a favorite venue for youth and collegiate sporting competitions, motocross and national monster truck events.

There is a surprising variety of consumer-based shows that take place at the RSLEC, featuring everything from antiques, trains and cars to RV and boat sales.

The RSLEC is situated on 43 acres of land located a few minutes from downtown Reno 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, 660 10-by-12-foot animal stalls and a 20,000-square-foot exhibition hall.

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 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.

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. The facility’s 20,000-square-foot, climate-controlled exhibition hall has a 100-by-200-foot cement floor.

For livestock events, the RSLEC has 19 barns on the property in addition to the stalls, as well as 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 a RV dump station on site.

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center, located at 1350 N. Wells Avenue, and is adjacent to I-80 and Highway 395, the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is easy to access, with a variety of hotels within a short driving distance.
