FRONTIER DAYS

June 3 - June 5, 2022

screen shot 2021 10 17 at 7.23.18 pmThe 2022 Frontier Days Festival will be back to a full schedule as we celebrate 50 years of Frontier Days.

Fifty years ago, a group Carson City residents met to discuss hosting a celebration modeled after the Centennial celebration that was held in 1967.  Members from a variety of community organizations gave brainstormed ideas for a weekend full of fun.  Since our city was named after Carson City, Nevada, the group decided on a western themed celebration.

Since the beginning, Carson City Frontier Days has celebrated with Country Western shows, rodeos, magic shows, canoe races, tractor pulls, carnival rides, parades, picnics, dances, hot air balloons and pageants.

Although Frontier Days has changed over the years, one thing remains. It is a time for friends, family, and neighbors to come together to celebrate the joys of living in a small town.

As we plan for the 2022 festival to celebrate this milestone, we strive to give our festival-goers a combination of traditional activities as well and new ones.

Please stay tuned to our Facebook page and this website for updated information on the festival.

When It All Began

In 1972, a group of Carson City residents met to discuss an idea. That idea was brought to the group as a fun weekend, much like the Centennial celebration Carson City hosted in 1967.

Those who have lived in Carson City for a number of years remembered with fondness the Dairyland picnics. At that event, and at the Centennial, there were contests, parades, and entertainment. Those were the days that Carson City residents came together for an enjoyable time. Since Carson City has long been associated with its namesake in Nevada, a western themed celebration seemed logical. With representatives from various organizations and interested volunteers, plans began for an annual event to bring Carson City residents together. The first Frontier Days was held in 1972. Over the years, residents of the area have enjoyed Country Western shows, a magic show, community picnics, queen pageants, hot air balloons, talent shows, rodeos, flea markets, canoe races, tractor pulls, sidewalk sales, carnival rides, dances, and entertainment of all kinds!

Although Frontier Days has changed over the years, one thing remains. It is a time for friends, family, and neighbors to come together to celebrate the joys of living in a small town.

Thank you to that first group of individuals for starting such a great community celebration!
