When is Nevada Day


The day when union was strengthened

This day is celebrated on the 31st of October every year. On the 31st of October in the year 1864, the state of Nevada was officially admitted to the union. This day is celebrated to commemorate the event. It is also known as the “Admission Day”, and the same was first observed as Nevada Day in the 1870 by the pioneers of the Pacific Coast. It was only in the year 1933 that the state legislature officially named the day as Nevada Day or Admission Day, and declared it a state holiday.

Originally, it was observed on the 31st of October every year. But, since the year 2000 the day is celebrated on the last Friday of October. As part of the observance, the schools, libraries and government offices remain closed. A parade is held in the Carson City, Nevada’s capital. Apart from the parade, the city plays host to carnivals and other events which help celebrate the day.

Till 2000, this was a single day holiday in the state. But, the officials thought it would be great if the people were given a three day weekend, as there would be more interest in celebrating this event. That is the reason why Nevada Day was officially shifted to the last Friday of the month. It is enjoyed for three long days by the people. While Friday is celebrated as the day, it is only on Saturday that the parades and carnivals are held in the Carson City. This parade is followed by Las Vegas and Henderson which helps extend it till Sunday. Since 2000, the different parts of Nevada celebrate Halloween on the 31st of October. This is so that the Halloween celebrations remain separate from the Nevada day Celebrations. Both events are celebrated with equal pomp and joy in this state.

Next Nevada Day is on 27 October 2017 (Friday)
