Nevada Day Parade Auction

The Best Nevada Day Parade Viewing Party Ever!

The Children’s Museum is offering local businesses, organizations and families an unique opportunity to bid on the exclusive use of the Museum’s front patio for the upcoming Nevada Day parade on Saturday, October 27. As you know, the Nevada Day Parade is an important event in Carson City and good viewing is at a premium. The Children’s Museum, located at 813 North Carson Street, is perfectly situated in the middle of the parade route. We have decided to capitalize on our perfect placement and turn it into a fundraising event for us and the ideal Nevada Day Parade watch party location for one lucky business, family or organization.

Sealed bids for this one-of-a-kind silent auction start at $500 and will be accepted until midnight, September 30. The winning bidder will be notified by October 5, allowing plenty of time for party planning. The winning bid will have the exclusive use of the patio and the elevated stairs in front of the building, a great place to host a large gathering of friends and family, company staff, or club members; capacity for the space is 60. The winner can bring in a barbeque, have the event catered, set up tables and chairs, whatever they wish to create the perfect parade viewing party. The winning bid will also have 2 reserved parking places on the north side of the Museum building and your party will have access to the restrooms in the Museum for the duration of the parade.

We hope that you will take advantage of this great opportunity to host the most unique Nevada Day Parade watch party around and, at the same time, make a meaningful contribute to the on-going programs offered to our community by the Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada.

Please fill out and return the bid sheet. You can mail it to us, drop it by (to check out the viewing area) or send in an e-mail with your bid. We will post the top bid, daily, on our website and you are welcome to call in and up your bid until the September 30 deadline. The winning bid must be paid in full by October 10.
