Show Me All Events

Better open up your calendar…

Nevada has never been a stranger to a good time. And for every world-famous event anchoring Nevada’s come-as-you-are, cut-loose culture, there are dozens more that are sure to steal your heart and fill up your camera roll. From big-ticket bashes in our two big metros to community-wide celebrations in every small town in between, find out where and when to whoop it up around the Silver State.

Nevada’s Gotta-See Gatherings

Whatever you’re into, just say the word. Chances are, we’ve got an event in Nevada that fits the bill. Chili cookoffs, “oyster” fries, and the Best Dam BBQ out there? Of course. Hot rods, Street Vibrations, and raucous river runs? Definitely here. Basque festivals, powwows, and good ol’ country fairs? Got ‘em all, baby. From cross-state off-road rallies and bicycles racing steam trains to town-wide music festivals and star parties, ghost walks and ballooning above glacially carved canyons to guided art and mural walks and cruising the “highway” of eagles and raptors, all corners of Nevada host gotta-see gatherings that locals and visitors alike keep comin’ back for all year, every year.

The Reno Rodeo
Elko National Basque Festival

If we’re placing bets, we’d put it all on you knowing some iconic shows in Las Vegas, Nevada. Maybe a few Cirque du Soleil mainstays, that damn iconic Blue Man Group, top-tier comedy and magic shows… it’s all here. And up north in Reno? Cowboy and outdoor adventure lifestyles both run true in those parts, so perhaps the whitewater-loving Reno River Festival or even the iconic Reno Rodeo—an event that recently celebrated its hundredth birthday—make your list. But believe us when we tell you that those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Silver State Celebrations

No matter when you plan to visit, your trip’s bound to coincide with something fun. Not sure where to start? Here’s a roundup of some of our biggest, weirdest, wildest, and straight-up most Nevadan celebrations.

#TravelNevada

See-it-to-believe-it shows. Only-in-Nevada festivals and races. Games where you can root, root, root for the home teams. Consider these special events to be the icing on your slice of Silver State cake, and don’t forget to tag #TravelNevada so we can show off just how much fun you’re having here.

Did you know that Pahrump is home to the Western Shoshone and Paiute tribes? You won't want to miss the 21st Annual Social Powwow held on Nov. 22 - 24, where everyone will gather and celebrate the Native American culture. Link in bio for more details.
We hope you all had this much fun at the Virginia City Rodeo and Fiesta del Charro this past weekend! [📸 @fuentesg90]
