Event Schedule Published for Hot August Nights in Reno/Sparks, Nevada

Every August Northern Nevada plays host to one of the hottest car show events in America.  It’s called Hot August Nights (HAN).  It technically starts in historic Virginia City, Nevada, where the festivities will begin.  On August 2 & 3, join the celebration kick-off as hundreds of your favorite classic cars and trucks line the main drag.  C Street will be packed each day. As the host venue for the official kick-off, it’s sure to be a party with free live music, a poker run, nightly cruises and a celebrity Show-n-Shine.

Sunday August 4th will be a day of rest and you better take advantage of that because starting Monday August 5th, the main event will kick back into high gear.  The festivities will continue in Reno & Sparks, Nevada with over 6,000 classic vehicles on display throughout both cities.

“The 10-day celebration commences in the historic mining town of Virginia City, Nev. on Friday, Aug. 2 to Saturday, Aug. 3,” organizers announced. “Then it’s down the mountainside to the Main Event in Reno-Sparks, Nev. starting Monday, Aug. 5 through Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019.”

More than 320 events are also scheduled for the annual classic car event centered around Reno.  “With its multiple show-n-shines, evening cruises, drag races, an auction, and much more the organization works hard to keep iconic traditions vibrant while still focusing on its even brighter future,” said Mike Whan, HAN’s executive director. “We strive to combine tradition with novelty by bringing exhilarating events and fresh entertainment to the hundreds of thousands of attendees and car participants that allow for northern Nevada to be lit by headlights for a week.”

The Biggest Little City will play host to thousands of visitors as they enjoy the largest classic car and nostalgic event in the country!  If you ever have the chance to attend, you definitely should.  It is a 10-day tribute to some of the most beautiful and powerful classic cars and hot rods this country has to offer, along with some of the best entertainment playing music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

There will be legendary bands and solo headliners that you will definitely want to check out while you are there, including KC and the Sunshine Band, Chubby Checker, Pablo Cruise, The Legendary Temptations and the Little River Band! The concerts start around 8:15pm and take place in two outdoor locations at the Grand Sierra Resort and the new outdoor concert venue in Victoria Square Sparks, the Nugget Event Center. It truly is an event that you won’t want to miss and after the first time you go, we promise you’ll be hooked!
