Good shows, exciting, a lot for kids and grown ups alike to enjoy. parking is another story, but there is a shuttle bus that goes around. Price is a bit above average, but once you're inside you forget all about it. Loud too!

I have been coming to the Reno Air Races annually for the past 7 years, and cannot recommend this event highly enough. At no other airshow have I experienced such a passion for aviation, both among the event coordinators, the pilots, and of course, the fans. The racing is exciting as can be, and the airshow never ceases to impress.... More

The air races are fair; I suppose if this is your hobby you will enjoy a week of aviation entertainment at its finest. To me, if you go once you have seen it all. Be sure to bring comfortable ear protection.

If you're even mildly interested in aircraft, or airshows, or racing, or motorsports, the Reno National Championship Air Races are an absolute MUST!!! This is THE fastest motorsport on earth! We've been going for more than 25 years. You'll see non-stop action from opening to closing every single day. The event is nearly 1 week long. There are multiple race... More

Would you like to see Air Races? Including an Air show by the best like "Thunderbirds"? This is really a treat if you like about flying, airplanes, and airplanes history. Spend the extra money to visit the exhibitors and their planes. I was amazed to find out the different "Class" of airplanes. It was more fun to visit all the... More

Have went to races a number of times, lots of enjoyment. You must get your room in advance. I have went last minute before and got a room ,but i had work at it. Get there early and take a lawn chair, it a all day event. There a lot of seating in bleachers. I eat at the nugget buffet.

Every September see history, heroes, and horsepower. The Reno Air Races have been going since 1964. Things have changed over the years, but the racing is always excellent. The people are amazing. Friends you meet at the Reno Air Races will remain your friends for life. This is paradise for gearheads and horsepower addicts, even if you don't even know... More

I went for the first time in 2011 and I've returned every year since. This event is so many things in one. Primarily, you're watching aircraft pilots race each other side-by-side mid-air. In most cases, the racers start aligned wingtip to wingtip and dive down into the race course from over your right shoulder. From there, they push their aircraft... More

I've been going to the races since for 15 years straight and I just can't get enough. I call it my favorite "holiday" of the year and it's the longest holiday of them all!!!! Pylon racing seminar in June is also awesome to see the planes round the pylons. If you have any interest in speed, aviation, history, or all... More

I have been coming to the air races every year since 2009, after the first year, we were hooked!!! We love aviation but over the years we have brought so many friends who were not as big of enthusiasts as we are and they said it was one of the most incredible things they have ever seen!
