Fire up the grills, tap the kegs and crank up the tunes for Reno’s best summer kick-off party! The Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival is equal parts barbecue block party, microbrew tasting event with more than 40 microbrews from around the world and music festival with two stages featuring nonstop rock and blues.

Past headliners have included Coco Montoya, Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, Blood Sweat & Tears, Greg Kihn Band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Canned Heat and Tommy Castro and The Painkillers.

Attendees can wash down the hot rock and blues with some frosty brews during the festival running June 19-20. A selection of the Eldorado’s own Brew Brothers’ handcrafted microbrews will be on tap, along with beers from more than 40 microbreweries from around the world.

Nothing invokes thoughts of summer like barbecue and the Eldorado will be satisfying ravenous festival-goers with mouthwatering fare like grilled chicken, ribs, sausage and more, hot from the outdoor grill. Food booths will line Virginia Street serving a variety of additional tasty fare.
