Saturday, August 15, 2020
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Nevada State Railroad Museum, Carson City, NV
In partnership with the Nevada State Railroad Museum, the Nevada Women's History Project presents a day to go back in history when women were fighting for the right to vote. Wear your "period" dress and ride the Virginia and Truckee that will use the same historic cars and engine that transported the suffragists to Carson City to observe the signing of the 19th Amendment in 1920. There will be food, booths, suffrage memorabilia, contests for the best period dress, and much more.

Be a part of history! In 1915, 182 women marched in the formation of the United States Flag to celebrate the passage of women’s right to vote in Nevada and to support passing the national 19th Amendment in 1920, giving all women in our nation the right to vote.
On October 31, 2020, the Nevada Women’s History Project will re-enact this historic event in the Nevada Day Parade. Please join the Nevada Women's History Project to create your own place in Nevada's history.
