FAQs

Where can I buy tickets for an event?

If the event is at the Reno Events Center, typically tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster or at the Reno Events Center Ticket Office the day the tickets go on sale from 10:00am - noon, or beginning at 10:00am on the day of the event. If the event is taking place at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center, tickets can be purchased at the ticket window by the main entrance of the facility. Some events at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center require tickets. If this is the case for an event you are looking to attend, you can call the Convention Center at (775) 229-7620 or email us at [email protected] to find out when tickets will be available at the ticket booth.
