Hot August Nights 31st Anniversary

Hot August Nights 2017 is the 31st anniversary of the Reno area's biggest event of the year, which will run from Tuesday, August 8 through Sunday, August 13. What began as a local party at the Reno Sparks Convention Center in 1986 now draws over 800,000 people during its run.

Hot August Nights is a celebration of everything to do with classic cars, vintage rock 'n roll, and the American era of the 50s and 60s when cruising, sock hops, and high school proms were all the rage. Hot August Nights is a party that takes over the town during its run. Classic cars fill the streets, rock 'n roll fills the air, and entertainment galore makes Hot August Nights the premier fun festival in Reno and Sparks.

There are a couple of preliminary related events leading up to the main August event in Reno and Sparks. If you want to get some experience before the really big party, check out the Hot August Nights Spring Fever Revival in May and the kickoff event in Virginia City the weekend before the big event gets going.
