An Update on Recent Changes to our Business

Hello everyone, and thank you for tuning in to our whereabouts in Reno! We’ve got an update to announce, and we are excited for what’s to come.

Caroline Sugar Skull Face Paint

In recent news, Caroline, the founder of Reno Face Painting, will soon be pursuing new endeavors in a career abroad, beginning February 11, 2019. While we are sad to see her go (and she’ll be back to paint with us intermittently), we are excited to announce that our artist and entertainer, Jonathan, will be taking over all booking and operations from now on. You can reach him at (775)-530-9763, or the same email at renofacepainting@gmail.com. Thank you all so much for sticking around, and we look forward to making more art and smiles with you in the new year!

Get Outside and Get Painted!

Summer is in full swing and so are many local outdoor events! We've been honored to be a part of many awesome festivals this year, and there are still many more to come. We recently painted faces at the Nevada State Fair in Carson City, as well as the ever popular Sierra Nevada Lavender and Honey Festival.

Happy Halloween from Reno Face Painting! A Recap of October Festivities

Halloween is finally upon us, and we are gearing up to put on our costumes and take the little ones for trick-or-treating! Of course, being face painters and entertainers, we've been celebrating since day one.  From Reno to Sparks and Carson City, we've been spreading the spooky spirit all month long.  Looking back on this month, here are a few of our favorite snaps.

A big thank you to the crew at Silver Valley Pumpkins and Nevada Fall Fest for having us in on all the fun!  Check them out:


Silver Valley Pumpkin Patch  | Sparks, NV |  Find them on Facebook 

Silver Valley Farm will be back in December with Christmas trees and train rides for the kids, check in with them soon!

Northern Nevada Fall Fest  | Carson City, NV

We had a ton of fun fainting faces alongside the Nevada Day Parade which showcased hot air balloons, jets, and tons of kids activities.  Expect to see us next year, and follow Northern Nevada Hotspot to keep up with their upcoming events!


We'll be back soon with more updates to let you know where to find us.  In the meantime, from all of us at Reno Face Painting, have a safe and magical Halloween!

Pumpkin Palooza was a blast, see you again next year! And where to find us next...

This past Sunday was a perfect day to be outside in Sparks for Pumpkin Palooza: 75 degrees, craft and food vendors, midway games, parades and more! Needless to say, we had a great turn out and lots of happy painted faces.  From superheroes to skulls, we had fun matching face paint to halloween costumes.  One child told us, "Face paint is so much better than this skeleton mask because it's too hot!"  I concur, kiddo.  We'll be back again next year!
