Reno Mardi Gras
Dates & TimeSat, Mar 24 | 7pm
Reno's biggest and best Mardi Gras party is back and this year it’s on Saturday night, so you can keep the good times rolling all weekend long. On March 24, join the Rotary Club of Reno at the Reno Ballroom for food, fun and philanthropy. This event is the largest fundraiser for the region’s oldest Rotary club and raises money for community and global service projects.
This year the Rotary Club of Reno is partnering with the Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus to bring attendees Creole, Italian, Latin American and Scandinavian cuisine, in addition to offerings from local restaurants. Attendees are going to have a huge variety of choices. Mardi Gras brings together many of the state’s top alcohol distributors and hundreds of wines, bourbons, and beers for sipping.
Taste the region’s best restaurants, all these unique spirits and be entertained for a night for a really affordable price. Back this year are two special libation areas: Bourbon Street, with offerings from local and national distillers, and the Rue De La Brew, featuring beers from the region’s best breweries. In between sips and bites, attendees can bid on the wide variety of silent auction items — such as exclusive trips, one-of-a-kind experiences, dining, golfing and more.
At the event, participants can also dance to music by DJ Fierce, watch acrobatic performances by the Siren Society, and interact with costumed characters from the Carnavale Costumers.
The event starts at 7pm and concludes at 10pm. VIP tables can be purchased for $1,200 and include reserved table for 10 and recognition. Individual tickets to the event start at $65, and prices increase to $75 on March 1. An exclusive, early entry, pre-event wine and food tasting takes place at 6pm for sponsors.
Reno Mardi Gras is the Rotary Club of Reno's primary fundraiser. With its proceeds and contributions from members, the club donated almost $200,000 between July 2016 through June 2017.
