Reno River Festival
August 15 - August 16
The Reno River Festival is an outdoor celebration in downtown Reno that officially kicks off event season in Northern Nevada. The River-Bike-Beer-Food-Adventure-Music Fest brings an array of traditional and unique warm weather activities to Wingfield Park. The family-friendly event has something for everyone. The heart of the festival is the Truckee River, where the world’s top whitewater athletes take on one of the country’s top-ranked whitewater courses on the circuit. There is free live music, food, libations, an adventure park, shopping, costume contests, and a casual bike ride led by a mobile band.
