Time: Various Event Dates & Times please see www.tonopahnevada.com/
Location: Tonopah, NV (Nye)
Description: It’s one of the biggest celebrations in Central Nevada.  We’re celebrating our 44th annual Jim Butler Days. If it hadn’t been for Jim, folks say, there wouldn’t be a Tonopah, Nevada.  In fact there wouldn’t be a Goldfield, Nevada or Beatty, Nevada.  This was one of the great silver rushes in the USA.  In 1900 it was Jim Butler’s discovery of silver that started all the fuss. Jim Butler Days is a great time for fun, parades and honoring this town’s historic past.  Head out to Tonopah on Memorial Day Weekend to experience a small-town flavor that’s a complete blast for the entire family. Our weekend includes blacksmithing classes, the Nevada State Mining Championships, and panning for gold or silver. Please check the Nevada 150 Event Calendar for additional information about all the activities that make up Jim Butler Days. A great event for the whole family, bring the kids!
