Dog Days of Summer Dance Festival
August 21 @ 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until August 21, 2022
The Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts is creating a new community event in partnership with the SPCA of Northern Nevada. This three-night event will provide a new performance opportunity for local dance companies and spotlight the work that SPCA-NN does for our community. Six local dance companies will be commissioned to perform on our new raised outdoor stage, with the iconic Pioneer Center gold dome and Nevada summer sky as their backdrop. Each evening of the festival will feature two companies performing a wide range of dance creations. During intermission, SPCA-NN will showcase adoptable and adopted dogs from their organization. The plaza will open at 6pm for a 7:30pm performance each night.
Audience members are invited to come early, bring lawn chairs, cushions, or blankets for seating around our 270⁰ outdoor stage, and enjoy a variety of food truck vendors. We encourage patrons to bring pet food and supplies to be collected by the SPCA-NN (or make donations online) and visit their Adoption Board.
