Bag Policy

Clear Bag Policy


To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into our venues, a bag policy has been implemented that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought in to the Reno Events Center, National Bowling Stadium, Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center and Reno-Sparks Convention Center
