What is Hot August Nights?
Hot August Nights is a celebration of America's love affair with classic cars and rock & roll. It began in Reno, in 1986 when a group of "Baby Boomers" decided an event like this would be a great way to show off their love for old cars and music from the 50 and 60's. Last year, the event drew about 800,000 people over 10 days and generated $242 million revenues for the Northern Nevada area.
With hotel rooms selling out months in advance, this year is estimated to bring in nearly the same crowd as the year before and approximately $350,000 million in revenue via hotel rooms, restaurant sales and gaming. This event has become a signature summer event for the entire family to come out and enjoy.
So come on out before the show is over and see the 5,000 participants cruise Victorian Avenue and find out why people say: "The Cars are Cherry and Cursin' is Cool" as Hot August Nights continues now until August 10th.
