Letter from the Mayor

Written January 10th, 2015  


The beginning of a new year is not only a time for renewal, but also motivation and goal setting. Here at the City of Fallon we aim to set strong, achievable goals for 2015 and encourage you to do the same. Join me in continuing to make community involvement a top, personal priority.

For starters, head down to Fallon City Hall, Convention Center or Chamber of Commerce to pick up a Live Local Passport to use while shopping local and earn stamps to be entered for great prizes. By eating, shopping and playing locally, our community and economy thrive together. This campaign was a driving force in our 2014 economy and we are excited to see the impact it has this coming year.

Hope to see you all out shopping at our local businesses and participating in community events this year.

~ Ken Tedford, Mayor, City of Fallon

Cantaloupe Festival Merges with Country Fair

Written January 10th, 2015  


The historic Cantaloupe Festival and Country Fair merge together this year, bringing back the time-honored celebration of one great festival. The four-day festival will get back to its roots by honoring the Cantaloupe Festival’s 30th Anniversary Labor Day Weekend. This anniversary marks the longest running agriculture festival in Nevada.

The Country Fair’s 4H and agriculture show influence combines with the Cantaloupe Festival’s farmer’s market feel for a true celebration of all that is agriculture in Lahontan Valley.

Everything locals love about each festival will continue to be a part of the event, with the exception of the Ranch Hand Rodeo. Look forward to a multitude of activities including vegetable and flower shows, Lions Club Jr. Rodeo and the Monday morning parade for an exciting weekend that brings the whole community together.
