Hot August Nights



During Hot August Nights 2014, cars are “cherry” and cruisin’ is “cool.”

It’s the largest classic car and nostalgia event in the United States with venues spread across the Reno Sparks area. Cars are the stars and rock ‘n’ roll rules through the dozens of concerts, controlled cruises, show ‘n’ shines, a sock hop and much more. Plenty of shopping can be found at the Big Boy Toy Store and Hot Augusts Nights Swap Meet.

The event will begin with a full day of activities on Tuesday, July 29th 6 with show-n-shines, cruising and entertainment, and will conclude on Sunday, August 3 after our parade of cars. You don’t have to own a classic car to be an enthusiastic participant of Hot August Nights Reno.For more information, please visit
