Reno - Great Reno Balloon Race

1595 North Sierra Street
775-826-1181

The mission of the Great Reno Balloon Race is to provide a premier, safe, family-oriented/tourist-attractive, visually dramatic event that celebrates the joy of flight while remaining free to the public.

The Great Reno Balloon Race is the largest free hot-air ballooning event in the world. During three days in early September, you can look up into the Reno skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring about. From its humble beginnings in 1982 with just 20 balloons, The Great Reno Balloon Race has taken flight with up to 100 balloons each year. The idea was to create an event that would keep visitors in town the weekend between the State Fair and the Reno Air Races and 33 years later, it is known as a world-renowned, and locally, a beloved community tradition.

One of the best free events in Reno! Catch the Glow Show and Dawn Patrol before sunrise and then watch the balloons soar when the sun comes up. They have special shaped balloons every year and you can collect a card from each of them. Super fun for kids. 😄
