ABOUT NEVADA 150

Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union, provided opportunities for celebration and reflection as we came together statewide to commemorate our shared history and build a foundation of cultural appreciation for generations to come. Nevada’s one of a kind and diverse history was celebrated throughout the state for an entire year in order to promote pride in the shared heritage of all Nevadans. Nevada’s Sesquicentennial celebration commenced on Nevada Day 2013 and concluded with an expanded Nevada Day celebration October, 2014. For more information, please visit www.nevada150.org.
