Reno River Festival


  • Down Town Reno River Park Truckee River Walk Reno, NV United States (map)

The Reno River Festival returns with a splash to kickoff Northern Nevada’s event season Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 – 14th.  Last year, the River Festival went on despite record low water flow, and the River Festival fans responded with record high attendance.  This year, winter returned with a vengeance and so will the Reno River Festival.  With a promising outlook on water levels, the signature white water events will be back in downtown Reno and which host the world’s top ranked whitewater athletes.

Let’s Not Forget the Shopping!

It’s Mother’s Day weekend and there isn’t a better spot to take the family shopping this all-important weekend.  The Reno River Festival hosts over 40,000 visitors and features over 100 different shops that have something for everyone.  You can shop for summer clothes, hats, purses, decor, jewelry and more. The shops will have everything from handmade crafts to popular retail items. Seriously, you name it, and it will probably be here, including NOX Jewelry!
