Record crowds are expected to attend the 2016 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off on Victorian Square in Sparks so the event will offer expanded free parking and shuttles to and from downtown Sparks.
For quick, convenient access, there are two shuttle stops this year. In Sparks, you can park at the Iron Horse Shopping Center on 505 E. Prater Way. For those located near south Reno, the Reno-Sparks Convention Center is offering another free shuttle in their parking lot at the corner of Coliseum Way and Peckham Lane.
“We highly recommend that rib fans take the free shuttles to the event this year,” said Lisa Jansen, Director of Special Events and Entertainment at the Nugget Casino Resort. “We’ve added a new shuttle location, so it’s easier than ever to take a free shuttle and remove the stress from parking. It is the best way to get to the event.”
The shuttles will run Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Shuttles will take event goers to the RTC Centennial Plaza, near Victorian and 14th St Street, just steps away from all the action!
The 2016 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off will be held on Victorian Square in Sparks from August 31 – September 5. The six-day event draws massive crowds as 23 of the world’s best cookers will serve up more than 241,000 pounds of ribs.
