Things to do in Reno!

Hot August Nights

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 to Sunday, August 11, 2013
All Week

During Hot August Nights, cars are “cherry” and cruisin’ is “cool.”

It’s the largest classic car and nostalgic event in the country and encompasses the entire region!  Restored hot rods and sexy muscle cars give enthusiasts a first-hand experience of popular decades done by.  Show-n-Shines, nightly cruises, drag races and burn-outs, swap meet, sock hop and prom are a few of the “cool” activities. The best performers from the era provide headline entertainment.  
Past entertainers have included: Blood, Sweat & Tears, Neil Sedaka, The Village People, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone, Sonny Turner, and many more great performers from the 50's, 60's & 70's.
