WINGFIELD PARK, DOWNTOWN RENO

Gates open at 5:00 pm | Concert at 8:00 pm

The Reno Phil Orchestra and Pops on the River take center stage as Broadway Returns.

Celebrate with friends and strangers while enjoying your favorites from Phantom of the Opera, Hairspray, Lion King, and more performed by the Reno Phil Orchestra and Broadway stars!

The only thing better than spending an evening at a hit Broadway show is spending an evening with all of them!

Pops on the River is the Reno Phil’s largest fundraiser of the year and features an outdoor concert, a costume contest, and a celebration of our city’s creativity and passion for the arts. This annual event takes place the second Saturday in July.

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 Drinkable Concoction
  • Best 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 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.
