The Golden Era of Reno

Pops on the River 2021

Saturday, July 10, 2021
Rancho San Rafael

Pssst…we have some swingin’ news just for you! Good news – you don’t need a secret password to find out about this speakeasy. We know you’ve been waiting to hear from us about the Reno Phil’s next move for Pops on the River – The Golden Era of Reno. Plans for the party of the century were well underway last year when the whole world changed and forced us to pause to protect the whole operation, “Che peccato.” Well, the time to pick up a mic and fedora, step into the spotlight and saddle up is now, and we’re ready to let you in on a little secret- we’ve figured out a way to move our party upriver and bring back the city’s best pop-up celebration in the park for 2021.

The final details are being orchestrated behind-the-scenes, and we will have more to tell you in the coming months.

TABLE SPONSORSHIPS & RESERVATIONS

MORE INFO COMING SOON!

TABLE JUDGING & COSTUME COMPETITION

THE COMPETITION IS RUTHLESS

Part of what makes Pops on the River such an unforgettable fundraiser is the table & costume contest. Themed tables are judged and then prizes awarded for the following categories:

  • Most Historic
  • Most Outrageous
  • Most Elegant
  • Best Mask
  • Best Golden Era of Reno Theme
  • & of course, Best of Show!

Remember, Pops on the River is a chance to showcase the creativity of our city! Dress to the theme, or not– but dress to impress! Judging is based on creativity and table participation – not the event theme! Unless, of course, you’re competing in the Best Golden Era of Reno Theme category – then we will definitely be judging you on that (DUH). There are no rules for the table decorating and costume contest, but please be respectful of your neighbors. You may be asked to remove anything offensive from your tables or costumes. Tall decorations need to be taken down prior to the start of the concert so as not to block your neighbors view.
