2018 Constitution Day Parade

Honoring the Past - Hope For The Future

Sunday, September 9th

















Nevada City’s Constitution Day Parade has been a local tradition since 1967 and is reported to be the oldest and largest Constitution observance in western America.   Nevada City swells to 10,000 or more on Constitution Day.    

The 52nd Annual Constitution Day Parade tops a weekend of festivities Sept. 8 & 9, 2018 including  Revolutionary War Living History at Pioneer Park, the Gold Country Duck Race on Deer Creek, and a free outdoor big band concert in the downtown historic district.  


The 2 p.m. Sunday parade through the downtown historic district features more than 100 entries including marching bands, floats, antique autos, equestrians, politicians and the perennial crowd favorites the Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City, a humorous but reverent group that portrays each U.S. president.

Park for free at the Nevada County Government Center at Highway 49 and Maidu Avenue. Take the shuttle into town.
