Event description

Description

Sunday is Dolan Auto Group Family Day with free camel rides for the first 100 kids.

For 60 years, camels, ostriches and even zebras have come to Virginia City for the annual International Camel & Ostrich Races. This hilarious annual tradition dates back to the 1950s, and features jockeys precariously perched on their beasts as they maneuver the track at high speeds, aiming for a win among the cheering audience in this historic mining town.

A comical racing spectacle that the entire family will enjoy, the event includes a fair-like midway with vendors and treats for the family. You can even catch a ride on a camel – a photo op not to be missed.

The three-day event offers general admission, shaded and a VIP experience that allows you to see the entire racing action up close. Friday is a special evening performance, Hot Camel Nights. Saturday offers two shows and the crowd favorite Camel Hump to C Street.
