Get down at the 2018 Street Vibrations Fall Rally in downtown Reno and other nearby venues for the best in noisy, colorful street parties. This event really is fun to attend, even if you aren’t particularly into the motorcycle scene. Street Vibrations Fall Rally 2018 runs from Wednesday, September 26 through Sunday, September 30.

The main Street Vibrations venue is along Virginia Street in downtown Reno. You can freely check out the long rows of shiny bikes and see what numerous vendors have to offer in the way of motorcycle clothing and accessories, food and drink, and lots of other stuff. There will be free entertainment, along with other attractions like the Tattoo Expo and Denver’s Choppers Bike Show. There will also be Street Vibrations action at Reno Harley-Davidson, Battle Born Harley-Davidson in Carson City and up in Virginia City.

2018 Reno Air Races

September 9, 2018

The 55th Annual Reno National Championship Air Races will be flying over Reno Stead Field from Wednesday, September 12, through Sunday, September 16, 2018.

The air show part of the event consists of performances by multiple aeronautical aces. There is always a headliner, which will be the Patriots Jet Team at the 2018 Reno Air Races. Past performers have included the USAF Thunderbirds, U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Another special feature will be the Air Combat Command F-16 Viper Demonstration Team. Air show performances occur during times between races.

Down on the tarmac, there will be displays of powerful military aircraft currently in service (some open for tours) and lots of beautifully restored historic flying machines. Vendors and exhibitors throughout the grounds will offer a wide variety of food, drink, and merchandise.

Be sure to read through my “2018 Reno Air Races” article for information about the show and races, getting to Reno Stead Airport, parking, and other useful information for enjoying the event as a spectator. To save a few bucks, try going during the first couple of days of the event – ticket prices increase daily, topping out on Saturday and Sunday.
