  • Booths 100 - 150 will proceed east on 1st Street to unload.

Any unattended vehicles parked on Arlington or First Street within the Festival Street Closure Area after 9:30am will be towed away at the owners expense.

Additionally, the City of Reno requires us to keep an open lane for emergency vehicles at all times. Any unattended parked vehicles blocking the travel lane on Arlington or First Street will be towed at owner's expense.

Special notice for booths or food trucks making sales:

  • We must have sales tax paperwork (provided at check in) and any remittances delivered to our admin office on Arlington by 5:30p.
  • If you file quarterly taxes with the State of Nevada already, you may remit taxes as normal directly to the State, but we do need the form back indicating this as well as your current NV Sales ID to remain in compliance with our event permitting.
  • If you do not normally submit Sales Tax to the State of Nevada/do not have a current NV Sales Tax ID, we are required to submit this on your behalf. Please provide a check (payable to the Nevada Department of Taxation) or exact cash with your One-Time Event packet (provided at check in).
