The Reno River Festival will be on Saturday and Sunday, May 10 and 11, 2014. Enjoy this free event at the Truckee River Whitewater Park / Wingfield Park in downtown Reno.
In addition to pro and amateur kayaking competition, there will be stand up paddleboarding, an expo featuring the latest in outdoor gear, lots of food and drink, and music at the Wingfield Park amphitheater.
The Reno River Festival has returned to its whitewater kayaking roots. Events from past festivals, such as Run Amuck, are not on the schedule. From what I’ve heard, staging some of these additional events during future festivals is still a possibility.
