August Events in Reno, Nevada

August in Reno is the perfect time to get out and try something new – a new event, trade show or festival with fellow car enthusiasts!

Here are a few suggestions for things you might do during the month of August in Reno, Nevada.

HOT AUGUST NIGHTS

Description:
Every August, the streets of Reno vibrate with the sound of muffled rumbles of rebuilt engines, rays of sunlight glinting off the polished chrome and heavy scents of Dapper Dan hair pomade fill the air. Droves of spectators line the sidewalks for a glimpse into the past, a time when a driver’s license and a hot car were all anyone needed or wanted on a Friday night.

Join us for a trip down memory lane or a new adventure. Whichever way you look at it, this nostalgic event has it all.

When:
Friday, August 3, 2018
8:00PM

Where:
Silver Legacy Resort Casino
Grande Exposition Hall
Reno, Nevada

RENO STREET FOOD – FOOD TRUCK FRIDAY

Description:
This is not a designated car show, but one of America’s Top 10 largest weekly food truck events, a great alternative for the family!

Reno Street Food is THE place for food truck foodies, not to mention it is a great way to spend Friday nights with family and friends. Come hungry because there are over 30 rotating gourmet food, craft desserts, beer, wine and mixed drink vendors to serve you each week. Without a doubt, it’s a palate pleaser! There’s no charge to attend the event, other than the food you purchase. Enjoy live music, lots of grass and shade, plenty of free parking, a large playground for the kiddos and train rides as well. It’s a great family event for locals and out of town guests. Relax in the park, bring your lawn chairs and a blanket and let us do the cooking for you!
