- This beautiful outdoor amphitheater is situated along the Truckee River, just steps from the Raymond L. Smith Truckee River Walk. During the summer months, there are public concerts by the Reno Philharmonic, plus theater, ballet and music during the day and on evenings. The park also hosts children's programs and storytelling. The Great Basin Book Festival is a very popular event held annually in September. At Christmastime, the area is decorated with Christmas figures and lights. It makes for a spectacular sight at night. Every Friday evening, from mid-June through August, one can enjoy free concerts by the Truckee starting at 5:30p.m.
