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 2021 has a different look to the weekend.  With safety in mind, we have scheduled events that we feel can be done while being socially distanced while keeping everyone safe.  We invite you to get out get involved.  Try something new.  Enjoy the weekend.

We encourage everyone to stay safe.  Keep socially distanced and please use the hand sanitizing stations/mask when appropriate.

We welcome you to Carson City Frontier Days 2021 and hope that you enjoy yourself throughout the weekend.
