29th Annual Dayton Valley Days

September 16 - September 17

Celebrating Nevada’s First Gold Discovery – In the Spring of 1849 frontiersman Abner Blackburn joined a group of emigrants heading from Salt Lake City to the gold fields of California. His handwritten journal records that “In the spring, (March), I joined a pack train for the gold mines.” The prospectors followed the Carson River route and camped at the mouth of Gold Cañon—at the site of today’s Old Town Dayton—to await the opening of Sierra passes. (Thanks to the Historical Society of Dayton Valley).  Come join the fun, food, parade, craft booths and music.
