There are hundreds of individual events, exhibits and workshops, with the majority of events and performances free. Artown brings national and international multi-disciplinary performances to Reno that are literally incredible. Artown 2021 will run for 31 days, from Thursday, July 1 through Saturday, July 31.

You can also select events by type by clicking on the menu choices - Music, Dance, Cultural, Theater, History, Visual, Kids, Film, Literary, Special, Workshops, and Ongoing.

For Artown's 26th anniversary, there are some changes to the way things were done in the past. A new venue is now in the lineup - Rancho San Rafael Regional Park - where many of the big performances will take place. With COVID restrictions still a concern, many performances will be ticketed and sold in pods that hold four people. Opening and closing nights, the Friday Night Music Series, the Family Series and other acts will play at this venue. Note that some shows are free.
