The fine state of Nevada was admitted to the Union during the Civil War on October 31, 1864. Beginning in the 1870's the Pacific Coast Society celebrated Admission day on this date. Eventually, it became known as Nevada Day and is now the largest statehood celebration in the nation!

The state observes the holiday on the last Friday of October with the celebrations and parade being held on the Saturday immediately following.

The main event is the Nevada Day Parade.  The parade is being held on Saturday, October 31st this year and begins at 10am at William and Carson Streets at the State Capitol in Carson City.  It concludes around 1pm - 2pm at Stewart and Carson Streets.

The parade consists of a military flyover, law enforcement, public officials, floats, marching bands and plenty of other entertainment.  Over 200 entries, each year make for a fun and enjoyable parade.I recommend that spectators bring lawn chairs and blankets and secure your spot early along the parade route.

As a 3rd generation Nevadan, my family has celebrated this day for many years.  My Grandparents participated in the Nevada Day Centennial celebration while I served on the Sesquicentennial Nevada Day Parade committee last year.

There is plenty to do besides the parade.  Pancake Breakfasts, Museum Tours, a Chili Feed and more.

If you have never ventured to Carson City I highly recommend that you check out the celebrations. It is a great day of fun for the whole family.  Everybody loves a party and this is a great one!

Here is a sampling of some of the great events.  You can find all of the events and details for the Nevada Day celebration at
