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 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. Currently we are no longer accepting any NEW applications, but you can still reach out to us, and we can put you on a waiting list in case someone cancels.
This year will be our state’s 155th birthday, and also marks 81 year’s since the Nevada Day Celebration moved to our Capitol, featuring a large parade downtown on main street Carson City.
2019 Nevada Day Theme
Greetings fellow Nevadans! This years theme is Nevada Counties – 100 Years. Why you ask? Well keep reading, and hopefully it will make perfect sense, like it did for the Nevada Day Committee.
Pershing County became Nevada’s 17th and final county in 1919, hence the 100 years. However we did lose, well kind of, Ormsby County 50 years ago when Carson City and Ormsby were consolidated into one municipal government. Also, a little known fact, in 1987 another county was actually created. Yes, Bullfrog County became our 18th county! Located in a 144 square mile enclave within southern Nye County, Bullfrog unfortunately had a very brief life span. Shortly afterwards, in the Nevada District Court, Nye County challenged the legislation used to create said county, and it was judged to be unconstitutional. This subsequently brought an end to number 18 after less than 2 years.
The last time Nevada Day had a theme honoring all of our counties was back in 1957, so 62 years later, the Committee felt it was about time to revisit it, especially this year as Pershing County turns 100 years old.
As we pay tribute to all of Nevada’s 17 counties, and all the unique splendor each and every one of them has to offer, we also need to remind ourselves that we are all in this together. 17 counties, 1 state, and 1 awesome annual statewide birthday celebration!
