Fairs & Festivals

Get ready to party in the most remote town in the Lower 48. Even though Jarbidge only has about 20 full-time residents, more than 100 people make the journey here for a day of celebration.

The Old West is still the present in Jarbidge. Watch (or join in) as the Jarbidge Days Parade takes over the dirt-road main street before participating in poker and beer crawls.

The festivities begin with the Jarbidge Days Parade, which starts at the Tsawhawbitts Ranch Bed & Breakfast. Set up seats along the dirt road that serves as Jarbidge’s main street or go from parade watcher to parade participant—all are welcome.

Jarbidge Days also includes a poker and beer crawl, both of which kick off after the parade. The beer crawl will take those 21 and up to both of Jarbidge’s Sagebrush Saloons—the Red Dog Saloon and the Outdoor Inn—and other stops throughout the community. Tickets are $25 per person. The Jarbidge Days Poker Crawl is $5 per hand, and there’s no limit on how many hands you put together. The winner equally splits the pot with the Jarbidge Community Association (the organizers of Jarbidge Days), and the worst hand gets a 12-pack from the Trading Post. You’ll have to be 21+ to play this, too.

You won’t want to miss the Jarbidge Arts Council Quilt Show, where a selection of gorgeous quilts will be on display before and after the parade. While you’re in town, don’t forget to check out the historic Jarbidge Jail, too. And since you came all this way, you should absolutely experience the majesty of the Jarbidge Wilderness Area, full of hiking, fishing, and camping opportunities.

Travel Nevada Pro Tip

Located only 12 miles from the Idaho border, Jarbidge operates on Mountain Standard Time (unlike the rest of the Silver State that operates under Pacific Standard Time). Don’t make the rookie mistake of relying on your cell phone for the time in Jarbidge—it won’t be right, and you may miss the parade and other happenings in and around town.

The dirt pass from Elko to this true wilderness outpost only gets plowed once a year, and snow can come as early as October. A paved route will take you through Wells and a small slice of Idaho. Check all travel conditions before you head for Jarbidge.
