Guide to Hot August Nights 2016

With a tagline of “Celebrating America’s Love Affair with Cars and Rock ‘n Roll,” Hot August Nights is a week dedicated to celebrating classic cars and music. But it is so much more than a celebration of classic cars and rock ‘n roll! Originally created as a way to draw tourism to Reno, 30 years later and Hot August Nights is one of Reno’s most beloved events. Each year the event draws loyal fans who have been participating from the beginning, and it continues to grow in order to attract new fans, young and old. People of all ages will be able to revel in the events of the week. From car auctions, cruises, and concerts to craft fairs, drag racing, and donut eating contests – there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy!

Virginia City Kickoff

On July 29-30, the historic Virginia City will be hosting the kickoff of Hot August Nights. From 10 am – 4 pm, cars will be on display along the streets of Virginia City. At 4 pm, a full hour of cruising begins! After the cruising is over and the engines stop roaring, grab a bite to eat at one of Virginia City’s favorite spots before heading down the scenic highway to Reno.

The entertainment schedule includes The Beatles Experience, Kraig Parker World Premier Elvis Tribute, and The Monkees – Good Times: The 50th Anniversary Tour.
