Goldfield Days returns in early August

The Goldfield Days celebration and land auction returns to Esmeralda County Aug. 5-7.

The town will celebrate its 21st annual event this year.

With that, people can expect another year of food, fun and entertainment. The three-day event is scheduled to get underway on Friday, Aug. 5, where hundreds typically fill Crook Avenue, Goldfield’s main drag.

The parade gets underway at 10 a.m. on Aug. 6. Line-up begins at 9 a.m.

Attendees can expect music, dancing, vendors and food as well as a chili cook-off and poker walk.

Attendees can also grab a raffle ticket for $1. Several prizes are available for this year’s event, including a 1-ounce gold bar. Raffle tickets can be purchased before Saturday, Aug. 6 at the chamber’s office at 165 Crook Ave.
