“It’s a feeling in the air – the excitement; the crowds downtown; the smell of food vendors.  July is Artown and it is now.” – Jennifer Mannix, marketing director of Artown

Reno comes alive in July. Artown always delivers a diverse lineup of events and activities for all ages, and this year is no different. The downtown corridor is transformed by citizens and visitors alike who come together to celebrate the vibrant and blossoming arts community in our Biggest Little City. July 2014 will mark the 19th annual Artown festival and will feature over 500 events, most of which are free to the public. From fire-spinning dancers to ballet, Artown promises something entertaining for everyone.

We know you will like what you see and we hope you will support your favorites during their programming seasons later in the year.” – Christine Fey, resource development and cultural affairs manager for the City of Reno.

Artown is performed for you, so come enjoy the fun!
