The Mardi Gras party everyone will be talking about will be on Fat Tuesday. Reno Mardi Gras is an annual event hosted by the Rotary Club of Reno.
At this year's event guests will enjoy the festive tradition of the night including dancing and indulging in rich food and drink as well as dressing in their finest Mardi Gras attire. Some will even have the traditional beads, costumes, and masks.
The Reno Ballroom will be transformed into a vibrant locale. The ballroom will become a sea of the traditional Mardi Gras colors of gree, gold and purple. The green represents faith, gold represents power and purple represents justice.
This year we celebrate the 21st annual event with the biggest celebration yet. Local restaurants including Campo, Men Wielding Fire, Gas Lamp, Wild River Grille, and the Sierra Job Corps, to name just a few, will prepare treats for the attendees to sample and nearly 2 dozen wineries, pouring over 60 types of wine, will be represented at the party.
In addition to great food, great wine and a great cause, there will also be an auction featuring specialty wine, art work, spa packages, ski lift tickets and Southwest Airline tickets. Auction items have been donated by local businesses and business leaders.
Funds raised through Rotary Club of Reno events are directed toward local community programs that help to improve quality of life, as well as educate and train local youth.
Tickets for the event can be purchased through www.renorotaryclub.org or by calling 775.851.1110
