Scott Carey, events and community relations manager of the Nevada Sesquicentennial Celebration, will provide an overview of the celebration and what events have already happened to commemorate our state's 150th birthday.  He will also discuss how you can get involved and what is coming up for Nevada Day.
Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union, will provide opportunities for celebration and reflection as we come 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 will be celebrated throughout the state for an entire year in order to promote pride in the shared heritage of native and non-native Nevadans alike.
By executive order of Governor Brian Sandoval, this once-in-a-lifetime occasion is an opportunity to showcase the unique contribution of Nevada’s culture and history. Plans for the yearlong celebration include official community based and signature Nevada 150 events, guaranteed to instill pride and inspire all Nevadans to participate in the Sesquicentennial celebration. These events and projects will be strategically designed to connect all communities throughout Nevada by tapping into the common pride in our shared heritage possessed by all who live or have lived in Nevada.
Nevada’s Sesquicentennial celebration will commence on Nevada Day 2013 and conclude with an expanded Nevada Day celebration in October 2014. (Source:
