Winter Light Festival

December 7 - December 14

Ring in the holiday season in downtown Reno with free family fun, festivities and interactive public art.

The Reno Winter Light Festival will kick off with the City of Reno Tree Lighting on Saturday, December 7 at the City Plaza. Come out early for a Makers Faire and check out local artisans and goods. There will also be food and drink options. The Tree Lighting Ceremony will start at 5 p.m and Santa will be on-site from 3-7 p.m. for free photos with the kids!

Starting Saturday, December 7, three temporary public art pieces will be on display through the duration of the Winter Light Festival. Visit ReTRAC Plaza on Virginia Street between 3rd Street and Commercial Row for “You Are Here… Elsewhere” by Vous etes ici ailleurs, a projection art piece based on interactive maps. With the play of lights, the video projections, the pictograms and the geographical coordinates, the human mapping turns into a playground.

Wander over to Wingfield Park to view “Fish Out of Water” by artist Bland Hoke. Otto the giant goldfish will be hanging out over the Truckee River during the day and illuminated at night.
