History of Nevada Day



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, after much heated debate, complied.




Nevada 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 26, 2012 and the Nevada Day Parade will be held Saturday, October 27, 2012, starting promptly at 10:00am rain or shine!


Nevadans love a parade and what better way to celebrate our heritage! Each October, Nevadans turn their attention to Carson City, Nevada’s state capital, home of the Nevada Day Parade.



The 2012 Nevada Day Theme:
Honoring Our Military & Families
Past, Present, Future

 



 
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.
