Nevada Day is formally October 31. That said, as of 2000 the holiday is celebrated on the last Friday in October. Libraries and other state offices are closed. 2019 Nevada Day is Friday, October 25.
When is Nevada Day? Nevada was admitted to the Union October 31, 1864. With the passage of AB396 by the 1997 Nevada State Legislature, Nevada voters, on November 3, 1998 advised the 1999 legislature they wanted to celebrate Nevada Day on the “last” Friday in October beginning in 2000. The legislature, after much heated debate, complied.
