Nevada Day Facts & Closures

Nevada Day Facts & Closures October 28, 2011

When is Nevada Day?

 Nevada became a state (admitted to the Union) October 31, 1864, so Nevada Day is October 31st of each year. However, with the passage of AB396 by the 1997 Nevada State Legislature, Nevada voters, on November 3, 1998 advised the 1999 legislature they wanted to celebrate Nevada Day on the "last" Friday in October beginning in 2000. The legislature agreed and now we celebrate Nevada Day on its new day, the last Friday in October.

Nevada Day SoldierNevada Day is presently a state holiday recognized on the last Friday in October with the parade on the Saturday following.

This year Nevada Day will be observed Friday, October 28, 2011 and the Nevada Day Parade will be held Saturday, October 29, starting promptly at 10:00am rain or shine. The parade happens in our State Capital, Carson City!

The theme for our 2011 parade is "Nevada's Great OutdoorsEnjoying ". This is our annual coming together to celebrate our heritage and the founding of our great state!

Now, more that a century old, Nevada Day and its many activities include: the parade, numerous contests, arts, music, and other family-oriented activities is un-equaled anywhere in the United States.

Nevada Day is more than just a parade! It is Nevada's Heritage Celebration, a gathering of community spirit on the last week of October to salute our state's past and look ahead to its future.
