Nevada Day 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 admission to statehood on October 31, 1864. Nevadan’s have the distinction of holding the largest statehood celebration in the nation! The highlight of this event is the Nevada Day Parade.
This year's theme is “A State of Economic Diversity”, which showcases the extremely diverse economic makeup of our beautiful state – one of the most diverse in the Union.
Girl Scout troops, families, and friends are invited to participate in the parade with the Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada group. Stick around after the parade to enjoy the rest of the festivities!
Registration Deadline: Thursday, October 11
