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 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.
This year will be our state’s 154th birthday, and also marks 80 year’s since the Nevada Day Celebration moved to our Capitol, featuring a large parade downtown on main street Carson City.
2018 Nevada Day Theme
Our Theme for this year’s Nevada Day Celebration 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, we feel, but you be the judge.
|This encompasses a wide array of industries:
Let’s not forget about Sports!
From the Reno Aces to the Las Vegas 51’s, along with Reno 1868 Soccer. The Las Vegas Golden Knights to the Las Vegas Raiders (due 2020), NASCAR, UFC, and NFR. We did, unfortunately, lose the Reno Bighorns (men’s basketball), however we gained the Las Vegas Aces WNBA Team. Is it just me … or is Nevada becoming a Team Sports destination state as well!
