The Reno Rodeo 2021 Legacy Committee is moving forward!
During the COVID-19 pandemic the committee continued to move the planning and design forward with our partners – Frame Architecture, The Blueprint Collaborative and The Perkins Company.
The project has been renamed Nevada Western Heritage Center (NvWHC). An organization to facilitate the funding campaign, Nevada Western Heritage Center Alliance, was created and the Board of Director’s has been appointed. The preliminary engineering and schematic drawings have been completed to 30% and we are currently working to obtain further funding, public and private, to move on to Phase 1 of the project. The “Alliance” will take this project to fruition in partnership and leadership of Reno Rodeo Association.

The Reno Rodeo Association has matched the State funds dollar for dollar to complete the 30% drawings and preliminary engineering. Also, the committee has engaged The Blueprint Collaborative (a Reno company) to design a capital campaign to raise the funds to realize our dream.
