For the first time in two years, there’s a grouping of holiday casino shows and Christmas tours heading their way through Reno-Tahoe. These shows join a bunch of other headliners in music and comedy to make the concert season steady-going for winter in our region.
Yet one holiday event not happening, maybe even forever in Tahoe, is Snowglobe, the New Year’s dance/electronica event run by MTV’s parent company Viacom that brought big names and thousand of visitors. SFGATE reported that the Lake Tahoe City Council did not renew Snowglobe’s contract, then organizers also canceled the 2021 event due to the pandemic before a new location was announced.
All the more reason for you to check first before attending any of the shows listed below, as conditions may still change in Reno-Tahoe due to the continuing pandemic response. Several venues in either casinos or in the club scene are taking extra measures to provide social distancing, including operating at less than 100 percent capacity and requiring vaccination cards, negative COVID-19 tests and/or mandatory mask-wearing.
See below for selected shows currently being announced for the next three months, November through January 2022.
