Classic cars line the streets of Reno as concessions are served and concerts are held outside the Grand Sierra Resort. Cars can be sold or purchased at either the Hot August Nights Auction presented by MAG Auctions located at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center or the Hot August Nights Cool Car Showroom located at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Event Center during the Swap Meet.
The Hot August Nights Foundation uses the event to raise money for local charities. In 2015, the foundation raised $65,000 by auctioning off a 1973 Ford Mustang with only 215 original miles on it.
