At Red Carpet Events and Design, we are always looking for new ideas and new venues to explore. We have been hosting events at Franktown Meadows for several years and we are excited to partner with Franktown as their exclusive event management company. We are delighted to share a little about this extraordinary gem.



To an equestrian, Franktown Meadows is a state of the art training and boarding facility nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. To an event professional, Franktown Meadows is a picturesque venue bursting with potential.

Conveniently located 20 minutes from Reno and Carson City, in Washoe Valley, Franktown is capable of hosting intimate gatherings and grand events, with spacious onsite parking for 1000 guests. Franktown Meadows has large green open spaces, perfect for accommodating tents of all sizes. The setting is truly stunning: your guests are surrounded by bucolic pastures, stately trees, and majestic mountains.

The possibilities are endless; from sporting events, to corporate programs, to weddings, this premier facility easily accommodates events of all shapes and sizes

Once a year, Franktown hosts the Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby, a renowned equestrian contest with a large purse and an even larger heart. Every year the best riders and horses in the country gather at the Franktown Meadows facility to compete and raise money for admirable nonprofit organizations. The recipients for 2017 are the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.


The 8th annual Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby is happening June 24th-25th, 2017. In addition to amazing displays of horsemanship and equestrian excellence, local vendors will be offering their bespoke wares. For more information on attending the derby or to schedule a private tour, contact Red Carpet Events and Design at 775-355-1501 or pop over the website:
