Event description

Description

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.

Saturday, September 7 schedule:
10 AM – Noon – First Performance
12 – 12:30 PM – Camel Hump on C Street
2 – 4 PM – Second Performance

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