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 18 – 19, 2018. 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 2018 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. 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.”
