Balloon Races - Things to do in Reno NV

The Great Reno Balloon Race

The annual Great Reno Balloon Race attracts nearly 100 balloons, including special shapes and is one of Reno’s most colorful and spectacular events.  Sure, it might be a bit earlier than you’re used to waking up, but you won’t regret it for moment!

Sands Reno Balloon Race Nevada

The Great Reno Balloon Race 2019

The Great Reno Balloon Race is the largest free hot-air ballooning event in the world. During three days in early September, you can look up into the Reno skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring about. From its humble beginnings in 1982 with just 20 balloons, The Great Reno Balloon Race has taken flight with up to 100 balloons each year. The idea was to create an event that would keep visitors in town the weekend between the State Fair and the Reno Air Races and 37 years later, it is known as a world-renowned, and locally, a beloved community tradition.

Taking place just a few miles north of downtown Reno, the event enchants both young and old with its vibrant colors and inspiring music. The Balloon Race has won many awards over the years including ‘Best Special Event in Reno’ and ‘Best Special Event in Northern Nevada.’ With an average of 120,000 spectators attending the event each year, the number of lives touched by the beautiful spectacle continues to rise just like the balloons themselves.

Visit The Great Reno Balloon Race HERE for more information about the event.

Reno Air Races - National Championship NV

National Championship Reno Air Races

The National Championship Reno Air Races soar into town September 11-15, 2019.

One of our favorite times of the year is right around the corner. The National Championship Reno Air Races come flying through with heart pounding thrills. One event that is sure to out smiles on the faces of all the “kids”.

The National Championship Air Races is the last event of its kind, carrying on the tradition of the Cleveland Air Races of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. In 1964, Bill Stead organized an air race near Reno, Nevada, and the Reno National Championship Air Races were born. The event that Bill Stead started in the Nevada desert more than 47 years ago is still going strong. The event has only been interrupted once in September of 2001 when all aircraft in the United States were grounded following the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington.

Held every September just north of Reno, the National Championship Air Races have become an institution for northern Nevada and aviation enthusiasts from around the world. For one week, the high desert north of Reno becomes home to hundreds of aircraft, their pilots and crews. In the past ten years, the event has attracted more than 150,000 spectators and generated more than $60 million a year for the region’s economy. The event features six racing classes, a large display of static aircraft and several military and civil flight demonstrations.
