The Great Reno Balloon Race
September 8, 2017 to September 10, 2017

The mission of the Great Reno Balloon Race is to provide a premier, safe, family-oriented/tourist-attractive, visually dramatic event that celebrates the joy of flight while remaining free to the public.

The Great Reno Balloon Race is the largest free hot-air ballooning event in the world. During three days in early September, you can look up into the Reno skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring about. From its humble beginnings in 1982 with just 20 balloons, The Great Reno Balloon Race has taken flight with up to 100 balloons each year. The idea was to create an event that would keep visitors in town the weekend between the State Fair and the Reno Air Races and 35 years later, it is known as a world-renowned, and locally, a beloved community tradition.

Taking place just a few miles north of downtown Reno, the event enchants both young and old with its vibrant colors and inspiring music. The Balloon Race has won many awards over the years including ‘Best Special Event in Reno’ and ‘Best Special Event in Northern Nevada.’ With an average of 120,000 spectators attending the event each year, the number of lives touched by the beautiful spectacle continues to rise just like the balloons themselves.

International Camel & Ostrich Races
September 8, 2017 to September 10, 2017

Camels, ostriches and zebras make a fine spectacle to watch as they race around the Virginia City Arena & Fairgrounds with jockeys precariously perched on their backs. It’s a sight you won’t see anywhere else. Bring the family out to enjoy this hilarious family event, a true staple in northern Nevada. After the races, join the Camel Hump to C Street where thirsty camels have been known to duck into a bar or two.

Reno Celtic Celebration
October 7, 2017 to October 8, 2017

Celtic Celebration, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit cultural programming and heritage organization that produces the annual Reno Celtic Celebration. This year marked our 25th event. The Celtic Celebration was started 25 years ago by Fitzgerald’s Casino/Hotel. It began as a Celtic New Year celebration during Samhain (Halloween, the beginning of winter on the Celtic calendar).

For several years is was operated as a gated event at the Reno Livestock & Events Center. Then it became a free event in Wingfield Park in July , as a part of ARTOWN, for the next several years. 2007 marked a return to the fall and a new venue as well – beautiful Bartley Ranch Regional Park.

The Reno Celtic Celebration is presented as a community and family event that is suitable and safe for all ages and sensibilities
