Street Vibrations Spring Rally is a shorter version of the much bigger motorcycle party held in the fall, yet still includes many of the attractions of the fall event – live entertainment, slow bike races, ride-in shows, poker runs, scavenger hunts, more than 80 vendors, VIP parties for participants and more.

Even if you aren’t particularly into the motorcycle scene, this event really is fun to attend. Street Vibrations Spring Rally runs from Friday, June 2, through Sunday, June 4, 2017. The main venue is along Virginia Street in downtown Reno, with additional action up in Virginia City.

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 musical entertainment on several stages.

Spring Fever Revival, an abbreviated version of Hot August Nights, brings classic cars, food and drink, a street fair and free entertainment to Virginia Street in downtown Reno on Friday and Saturday, May 19 – 20, 2017. If you like the full version in August, this event is a great warm-up.

Spring Fever Revival is open to all 1976 and older vehicles, with free entry for all Hot August Nights 2017 registered car participants. The entry fee for non-registered participants is $35. It’s free for the public to attend and enjoy the fun along Virginia Street.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. And since Spring Fever Revival will be in downtown Reno with its casinos, bars, and restaurants, there will be plenty of other fun things to do as well.

Reno can get crowded during events like Spring Fever Revival, making parking somewhat hard to come by. Learn about where to stash your wheels from “Where to Park in Downtown Reno.”

Cinco de Mayo is on May 5, which is on a Friday in 2017. However, the weekend before is when to look for the main Reno celebration of this Hispanic-themed observance.

The two days of fun will feature several Latino bands, amateur boxing, Mexican dancing horse performances, lots of vendors with food, arts and crafts, carnival rides and more. This is a family-friendly fiesta that runs from 12 noon to 8 p.m. on both days. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids under 12.
