Burning Man


This once-a-year annual festival returns and it’s set to be a huge comeback year after covid cancellations. Bringing in tens of thousands of people from all over the world, set in Nevada’s black rock desert, this event is a bucket list item for sure. With people gathering in Reno before and after heading out to the desert it’s a sure time to see wild and wacky displays that are associated with Burning Man.

Western Night at The Elm Estate

Western Night At The Elm Estate


Grab your boots and join us for a night of line dancing. After the success of the past few Western nights at The Elm Estate we’ve gathered our vendors together, booked our teachers and we’re ready to go for another round. It seems like Reno can’t get enough of the Cowboy theme and we can certainly see why. Happy hour, food trucks and dancing… you wouldn’t want to miss this. Get your tickets here.

Beyond Van Gough


Throughout the whole month of September, you can go and experience the immersive Van Gough exhibition at the convention center. The exhibition has traveled the world and we are so excited about it coming to Reno. A great experience for the whole family to attend. They’ll even have a guided yoga practice under the starry sky on the 10th of September. Check out and purchase your tickets here.
