The Reno River Festival returns June 12-13 with a celebration of all things local. The heart of downtown Reno will transform into an outdoor destination featuring local craft beer, local food, local craft vendors, and local musical acts. Riverfest will look a little different this year, but it is packed with all things summer for one unforgettable weekend.

It’s been a year, but summer is finally back! Let’s get back outside, back to our community, and back to adventure. It all begins in Reno/Tahoe.  

Choose your outdoor adventure! Support local, hop it up with samples of craft beer, get a little bubbly with the summer hard seltzer tour, or reserve your crew some relaxing summer vibes. Get your tickets to the Reno River Festival now!

Kids are free! *17 and under


Owned by Liquid Blue Events, a local, family-operated small business, the Reno River Festival is historically one of the few free events to attend in Northern Nevada. LBE has been able to make it free thanks to the support of the RSCVA, the City of Reno, and our sponsors. The city typically provides us with funding for the park, police, staffing, and a variety of other services. Due to the pandemic, the city is unable to provide this support in 2021. We need to charge a nominal fee in order to pay for the park, staffing, and everything needed to provide a safe event environment. 


This year, the Reno River Festival is all about supporting local and a love for our community! Local craft vendors, food trucks, performers, and others who rely on events to make a living have been hit especially hard by the pandemic. We have been working non-stop to be able to put on RiverFest so they have a safe place to get back to work. We also want to bring back a sense of normalcy and fun to our community. Your festival entry fee allows you to take part in this outdoor celebration of all things local with access to local live music at MusicFest, shopping at local crafter and artist booths in the Vendor Village, tasty treats at local food trucks, and locally brewed craft beers, hard seltzers, and more at the RiverFest bars!
Proceeds from the 2021 Reno River Festival entry fee benefit the 100+ Liquid Blue Events, City of Reno, and security staff working around the clock to ensure you have the best and safest festival experience possible. 
We are so grateful to everyone in Northern Nevada who has turned out to celebrate summer with us these past 17 years, and we hope to see you in downtown Reno this June 12-13!
Only pre-purchased tickets are guaranteed entry into the festival. Limited availability.


Riverfest is going to look a little different this year, but it is packed with all things summer! The festival features a Craft Beer & Seltzer Experience, Vendor Village, food, and MusicFest! A comprehensive COVID plan is in place for the festival. That plan could change depending on updated restrictions, and it would mean a much bigger celebration! 

Hop it up and notch or get bubbly with tickets to the Craft Beer & Seltzer Experience! Sample award-winning local craft brews or a wide array of fruity and crisp hard seltzers while you celebrate all things local!

MusicFest at the RRF is a showcase of local music! All weekend long, local artists will perform on the Wingfield Amphitheater stage. Want the ultimate experience to take in these summer vibes? Reserve a table with front row seats to the music!

The Vendor Village features more than 100 shops owned by your neighbors! Discover a wide selection of unique and handcrafted items made by local artists and crafters.
