Location of the Great Italian Festival

The event is along Virginia Street in downtown Reno, in front of THE ROW (Eldorado and Silver Legacy). The area is closed to vehicle traffic during the event. There is lots of downtown Reno parking (both free and paid) for festival goers. You can also get there on the bus and save the parking hassle. The RTC 4th Street Station is only a couple of blocks from the action at the Eldorado Great Italian Festival.
