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!
