Hot August Nights 2016 Event Schedule

Classic Car Pinstripe

Every August, the streets of Virginia City, Reno and Sparks vibrate with the sound of muffled rumbles of rebuilt engines, rays of sunlight glinting off the polished chrome and heavy scents of Dapper Dan hair pomade fill the air. Droves of spectators line the sidewalks for a glimpse into the past, a time when a driver’s license and a hot car were all anyone needed or wanted on a Saturday night.

Join us for a trip down memory lane or a new adventure. Whichever way you look at it, this nostalgic event has it all.
