Reno Arts & Culture: September

September is a great month to explore the many different celebrations we have for arts and culture. From world-renowned events to intimate musical performances, it’s easy to find a place to fit in.

Special Events

Burning Man: Talk about the arts combining with culture, Burning Man is the ultimate celebration of bringing people together to create their very own community. Attendees make life-long friends with those who cross their paths and embrace Burner culture. One of the best things about attending is seeing the incredibly unique works of art, including the Man himself. If you didn’t get a ticket this year, there are still plenty of ways to experience the magic of Burning Man. The event runs from August 28-September 5. Find out more on how to prepare for the big week.

Numaga Indian Days Pow Wow: Just a short drive from Reno, Hungry Valley will host the 30th annual cultural celebration. Taste traditional native foods while experiencing some of the best Native American dancers, singers and drummers. Peruse handcrafted silverwork, beadwork, baskets and other American Indian art while you’re there. Event runs September 2-4.
