ARTOWN Family Festival

Each Monday evening in July, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM, ARTOWN hosts the Family Festival.

KNPB will be at each evening of the ARTOWN Family Festival with PBS KIDS Summer Learning interactive activities for children and families to experience and discover. In addition, through out the month, there is mural painting, literary reading, balloon art, art projects and appearances from everyone’s favorite Reno mascots — all in the heart of downtown Reno, Wingfield Park.

 Each night of the festival, ARTOWN has selected a schedule of special performances that will introduce children to the performing arts and nurture their appreciation for arts at a young age. Performances begin each Monday in July at 7:00 PM.
