Each year the committee takes on the task of creating a schedule of events that will be enjoyed by the entire community. We strive to make the entire festival weekend FREE to our community and to be very family friendly. You will notice Frontier Days 2020 has a few new events to enjoy as well as community favorites from the past. We invite you to get out and enjoy what our fantastic city has to offer.
We welcome you to Carson City Frontier Days 2020 and hope that you enjoy yourself throughout the weekend.
In keeping with tradition, Saturday afternoon (June 6, 2020) will be filled with the Buckaroo and Grand Parades. Bring your lawn chairs and/or blanket and line the streets of Carson City to enjoy one of the favorite activities of our festival weekend.

Entertainment by Tim
Tim Salisbury will be making his way back to Carson City for the 2020 Frontier Days Festival. Tim is a variety entertainer extraordinaire. He has performed throughout the midwest for the last twenty years. His shows are fast moving performances that keep audiences on the edge of their seats wondering what is going to happen next. You will witness world class juggling (yes, even with bowling balls), feats of strength and balance and a lot of audience participation.
Saturday Market Place
We are currently in the process of accepting applications for the Marketplace Craft Show for the 2020 Frontier Days celebration. This is an outside event along the street (Second Street) and an adjacent parking lot. The event will be a one day event on Saturday, June 6, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Do you like watching 'Flea Market Flip' on HGTV? Do you take weekly trips in the summer to Trufant? Do you like to search for treasures? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then Frontier Days 2020 is the place to be! The 2020 Frontier Days Festival will be hosting our very own Flea Market. This will be located on Sherman Street from the corner of First Street to our downtown area. We are hoping to fill this area with treasures that you just can't pass up.
