Hot August Nights Releases 2019 Schedule of Events



More than 6,000 classic vehicles are expected to return to Northern Nevada from August 2 through August 11, 2019. More than 320 events are also scheduled for the annual classic car event centered around Reno.

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

HAN increased classic car requirements this year from 1976 to ’79, which will allow more cars to be a part of the event.

“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.”

Music highlights include:

  • Pablo Cruise
  • KC and The Sunshine Band
  • Little River Band
  • The Legendary Temptations
