The Eldorado Great Italian Festival transforms downtown Reno into Little Italy with a grape stomp, sauce cookers competition, wine walk, an Italian farmer’s market, kids’ gelato eating contest, Italian Buffet and incredible, free, live entertainment all weekend long.
A crowd favorite year after year continues to be the Great Italian Festival Sauce Cook-off. Italian families from across the West Coast bring their recipes to life right on the street for guests to taste.
No Italian Festival would be complete without plenty of homemade Italian food!
There are plenty of offerings street side as well— traditional Italian fare including house-made pastas, deep fried raviolis, meatball and sausage sandwiches, garlic bread, grilled flatbread, the Eldorado’s famous mushroom ravioli and more.
