Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival


Nothing says Summer in Nevada like beer, barbecue and bands!

So 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 at THE ROW in downtown Reno is equal parts barbecue block party, microbrew tasting event with more than 50 microbrews worldwide, and music festival with two stages featuring nonstop rock and blues!

Live outdoor concerts are free to the public. A selection of the Eldorado’s own Brew Brothers’ handcrafted microbrews will be on tap, along with beers from dozens of other microbreweries around the world.

Beer-tasting packages include a commemorative tasting mug and an unlimited beer tasting wristband for the purchased time frame. Hours for Brews and Blues are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday with beer tasting ending one hour prior to the festival’s end time.

The aroma and distinctive flavors of barbecue invoke thoughts of Summer like nothing else. The Eldorado satisfies ravenous festival-goers with mouthwatering fare like grilled chicken, ribs, sausage and more—all hot from the outdoor grill! Food booths will line Virginia Street serving a variety of additional tasty fare.
