Celebrate Fall with this 50+ year annual tradition, the Pahrump Fall Festival! The festival started out as a simple harvest festival where a couple hundred people gathered to share the harvest, have fun and eat some good barbecue.
Today, the festival starts on a Thursday, September 23rd and continues for four days ending on Sunday, September 26th. This event is brought to you by the Town of Pahrump providing free admission to the festival and entertainment. There is a fee for the rodeo and unlimited carnival ride bracelets are available for purchase.
The festival kicks off this evening with a fireworks show at 7:30pm by Zambelli Fireworks. Hot air balloons will launch Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather permitted) at sunrise(6am).
The Fall Festival includes a parade Saturday morning at 9am, that commemorates the occasion traveling down Highway 160 for about 2 miles with over 50 floats. This year’s parade theme is Stars & Stripes.
The Car Show will be held Saturday September 25, 2021 from 9am -4:30 pm. And no carnival would be complete without rides and more rides, booths and booths of carnival games and your favorite carnival eats.
A highlight of the Fall Festival is the rodeo! The rodeo will be held on Friday and Saturday. The first festivals were made up of solely the rodeo and over the years the festival evolved into a 4 day celebration where the rodeo is still at the center of it all.
