Quick Note from the Nevada Day Committee and Staff:
As our state faces horrific effects from the recent global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our fellow Nevadans. Together we must stand united, stay positive, and support our fellow neighbors. Throughout our 156 year history we have encountered floods, fires, mass shootings, recessions, and other disasters, and yet here we are hand in sanitized hand taking on this latest challenge. Once again we will persevere, and if anything this will make us even stronger, for we are truly Battle Born and Nevada Proud!
We would like to thank all of our Volunteers, Sponsors, Parade Entrants, Vendors, City and State Personnel, and Everyone that came out to watch, or participate, in last years Nevada Day Parade and Celebration! This longest running, historical event, would not be able to take place without your support! Please visit all of our 2020 Sponsors that are listed here on our website.
Speaking of Volunteers, Nevada Day needs your help! Please consider becoming part of this great Nevada only tradition. We are mainly looking for Parade Marshals, and members of our newly formed Green Team that will assist us in making the Nevada Day Celebration a more sustainable event by reducing, recycling, and reusing. Recycling Stations will be set up in various locations, and will need to be monitored. Just hit the Volunteer Button above, fill out the form, and submit!
Nevadan’s love a parade – and Nevada Day is more than just a parade! It is Nevada’s Heritage Celebration – a gathering of community spirit to salute our state’s past and look ahead to its future.
Nevada Day is a grand celebration commemorating our states admission to statehood on October 31, 1864. Nevadan’s have the distinction of holding the largest statehood celebration in the nation! The highlight is the Nevada Day Parade.
Parade applications will be available on June 1st, however we are currently accepting Sponsors. The online form is not up yet, hopefully in another month or so, please check back, but if you are interested in supporting this longest running historical Nevada tradition, please contact us at email@example.com, or call the office at 775-882-2600.

This year will be our state’s 156th birthday, and also marks 82 year’s since the Nevada Day Celebration moved to our Capitol, featuring a large parade downtown on main street Carson City.
The 2020 Nevada Day Parade theme is:
“Historic Moments in Nevada”
Numerous moments throughout our state’s history help shape and define Nevada. From the day this glorious state was born on October 31, 1864 during the Civil War, to the current year 2020, specific periods in time during our 156 years of statehood tend to stand out and set us apart from the other 49.
From the historic Gold and Silver Boom in the Comstock, legalized gaming and prostitution, quickie divorces – I imagine with some of the earlier Settlers this could have happened in that exact order – Women’s Suffrage, UFO sightings (landings?), on to the more recent decision of legalizing Cannabis.
Yes, Nevada has indeed had its share of unique moments occur in the past, with undoubtedly more in store for the future, and the Nevada Day Committee felt it was time to reflect back on them.
Also, please share with us on Facebook and Instagram when your company, organization, or business first took root in Nevada; we would like to share your story. Plus, what historic moment do you feel was the most significant?
Thank you for you continued support of this amazing, historical Nevada tradition!
