If you’re looking for tips on what to see when you visit Nevada, we’ve got your back.

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.

Brief Intermission: This week it's all about our extraordinary setting! Swipe to take a virtual vacation to our lakeside location, the theater we all love. More photos at our link in bio. 📸 Photo one by Jen Schmidt, following photos by @joystrotz.
It was an extraordinary pleasure to see @jose.gonz.music and @wearethestringtheory perform at @pioneercenter in Reno, NV - presented by @renoisartown. They're performing the last US stop on their tour tonight in Los Angeles. Break a leg y'all!
