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 Music

The Reno Phil honors “The First Lady of Song” Ella Fitzgerald. This concert will feature many of her most beloved hits from the Great American Songbook, including How High the Moon,  Summertime, A-Tisket, A-Tasket, Satin Doll, Blue Skies,  and many more.  Starring the Reno Phil Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Laura Jackson and two amazing vocalists, Capathia Jenkins & Aisha de Haas. Join the Reno Phil  for an unforgettable journey through some of history’s most cherished songs.

Don’t forget to register!

Due to health and safety concerns, we will be implementing a new policy beginning this year that will require ALL event attendees to register directly with the Reno Phil. This policy will allow us to deliver wristbands directly to attendees and alleviate the bottleneck at the park entrance that has prevented many attendees from entering the park in a timely manner at the start of the evening. As a reminder there is NO WILL CALL at the event, and wristbands must be received in advance.

Please fill in your information below. All attendees must register by June 25, 2021, or they will not be admitted to the park. Wristbands will be mailed the week of June 28, 2021.

**REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. If you did not register, your bands will be sent to the original table or pod purchaser**

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 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.
