One of the most unique features of the rodeo is the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive. For 5 days, riders move 300 head of cattle through the high desert, from Doyle, California to Reno. Just step out of your motel in Downtown Reno and enjoy the ultimate views of the moving riders. It culminates when they reach Reno at high noon on Thursday.

The carnival at the Reno Rodeo, complete with rides and games, is hosted by Davis Shows Northwest and is held in front of the Reno-Sparks Livestock Event Center Outdoor Arena. This is the best place to spend time with family and friends if you need a break from the action or if you simply would like a fun night out.

The Reno Rodeo is famous for its delicious food and Western vendors. A must-have while you are there are the “Kick Ass Fries” at BJ’s BBQ. Grab some of those and a cold drink, then walk around and check out all of the local and out-of-town vendors. At the Double R Marketplace, you can find everything from Western clothing and home décor, to saddles and other riding gear.
Just because the rodeo competition has ended, does not mean that the party needs to stop. For those 21 and over, put on your dancing boots and head to either the Jack Daniels or Coors Double R Bar tents, open until 1 a.m. For the ones who love newer country music, the Jack Daniels is right up your alley. If you prefer a more ‘old-school’ country sound, then the Double R Bar will have you swinging the night away.
