Constitution Day Parade & Festival

Nevada City’s Constitution Day Parade and Celebration has been a local tradition since 1967 and is reported to be the oldest and largest Constitution observance in western America. The parade features more than 100 entries and culminates other activities including Civil War reenactments in Pioneer Park. The parade through the downtown Nevada City historic district includes marching bands, floats, antique autos, equestrians, politicians and perennial crowd favorites, such as the Ophir Prison Marching Kazoo Band and the Marching Presidents of Nevada City, a humorous but reverent group that portrays each U.S. president.
