 Nevada’s Turning 150!

Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union, will commence on Nevada Day 2013 and will provide opportunities for both celebration and reflection. Numerous events are planned throughout the entire year which will celebrate Nevada’s diverse history and promote pride in the shared heritage of both native and non-native Nevadans.

Plans for the yearlong celebration, which will culminate with an expanded Nevada Day celebration in October 2014, include official community based and signature Nevada 150 events, guaranteed to instill pride and inspire all Nevadans to participate in the Sesquicentennial celebration. These events and projects will be strategically designed to connect all communities throughout Nevada by tapping into the common pride in our shared heritage possessed by all who live or have lived in Nevada.
