As the month of June comes to an end, the stress from procrastinating your Fourth of July plans settles in. Whether you want to spend July Fourth with friends, family, strangers or all three, the Downtown Reno Partnership has you covered with four activities guaranteed to fill your holiday with fun.
Eat, drink and play at this vibrant, outdoor location that can entertain you and your crowd for hours. The Eddy welcomes people of all ages during the day to enjoy food, drinks, games and good company. Even better, if you don’t want to leave your pup out of all the holiday festivities, The Eddy is dog friendly.
Bring your family and friends free of charge to play giant Jenga and Connect 4, ring toss and corn hole. Did we mention The Eddy also has outdoor bocce courts?
Since the Fourth is on a Thursday, take advantage of happy hour deals. Save $2 on drafts, wine and well drinks at The Eddy’s happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. Relax and refresh with a cold drink of your choice from the three different bars located inside the area. Each bar has different drafts so make sure to check out each one.Of course, a drink must be accompanied by food, so find mouth-watering pizzas and salads from Fire Trail Pizza inside.
Take your friends and family out to the ball game and watch the Reno Aces play the Sacramento River Cats at Greater Nevada Field. Tickets range from $23 to $55 depending on the seats’ location in the stadium.
The game starts at 6:35 p.m. so make sure to leave plenty of time to grab food and drinks. There are concession stands inside the stadium with all the baseball food essentials like burgers, hotdogs, ice cream, turkey and avocado sandwiches and veggie burgers. The stadium features three restaurants that will satisfy your pre-baseball game cravings: Bugsy’s Sports Bar, Good Hops and Red’s Broken Bat BBQ.
After the game, there will be a firework display that you won’t want to miss. Fireworks are a staple ending to Fourth of July celebrations and what better way to watch them than at the Greater Nevada Field.
Brew Bike Reno
Explore the streets of downtown on a 15-passenger bike. Gather friends or family together and pick a tour duration on the Brew Bike website for two, two-and-a-half, or three hours. The time slots for tours start from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Brewpub public tours are open for people to book individual seats online. Private tours are available for groups of six or more. Since July Fourth falls on a Thursday, take advantage of the cheaper weekday prices Brew Bike Reno offers.
This brewpub tour stops at three to four bars or breweries for passengers to indulge in tasty drinks and food along the way. Pedal through downtown with your group to experience sites, food and drinks, all while getting a little exercise!
If you’re looking to hear patriotic and classical music performed by the talented Reno Phil Orchestra, then make sure to stop by this Reno Artown event at Wingfield Park. The park will be open to the public at 5 p.m. Bring a few lawn chairs and blankets to kick back and relax before the free concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
Wingfield Park is also a perfect location with a plethora of surrounding bars and restaurants worth a visit. Go for a walk and grab a nice Fourth of July cocktail or meal prior to the event.
Every concert needs a grand finale. In honor of the Fourth of July, after the concert there will be a firework show that will light up the night sky and your holiday.
