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 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.
