Reno River Festival
Get to know summertime in the Biggest Little City one restaurant, coffee shop, craft beer hall, and swimming hole at a time along the Downtown Reno Riverwalk. With things to see and do all 12 months of the year, the island-like Wingfield Park beckons visitors and locals alike to the summertime Reno River Fest, where live music, craft beer gardens and tasty local food trucks, and whitewater kayakers join forces for this two-day outdoor celebration of the mighty Truckee River and Reno community.
Drawing more than 50,000 people to Reno’s Riverwalk District and Wingfield Park, the Reno River Festival has become one of the region’s biggest events, officially marking the beginning of the event season in the Truckee Meadows. At the center of it all are the world’s top whitewater athletes competing at the Truckee River Whitewater Park. No whitewater competition will be happening at the 2022 event, though visitors can still get in on the relaxing sights and sounds of the mighty Truckee River surrounding this outdoor extravaganza.
A festival entry fee will allow you to take part in this authentic outdoor celebration of all things local with access to live music at MusicFest, shopping at local crafter and artist booths in the Vendor Village, tasty treats at local food trucks, locally brewed craft beers and beyond. The Music Festival within the Reno River Festival features live music on two stages—Wingfield Park Amphitheater and Craft Beer & Seltzer Experience—for artists behind some of the biggest hits on the radio performing the music they wrote for major stars.
