Chili on the Comstock Returns

 In Our Tales

Hot chili and cold brews take over the historic town May 21-22, 2022 with Chili on the Comstock

Historic Virginia City, Nevada, lays claim to many things. Hosting one of the best chili cook-offs in the region is one of them. The town’s annual Chili on the Comstock and Craft Beer Tour, set for May 21-22, 2022, brings some of the best chili cooks from around the region to compete. The 39th annual event offers attendees tasty chili samples from award-winning cooks and refreshing beer samples with the Craft Beer Tour. Tasting packages are on sale now.

Tasting package options give attendees the option of sampling from more than 20 professional chili cooks, craft beer samples throughout the town, or a combination of the two. For those just wanting to come up and enjoy the atmosphere but no chili or beer, the event is free to attend.

Each Chili Sampling Only ticket gives purchasers access to 10 cooks. If that’s not enough chili for one day, additional packages can be purchased onsite. The Craft Beer Tour gives ticket holders the chance to sample craft beers at participating saloons and bars. The Chili & Craft Beer Sampling Combo gives ticket holders the best value with 10 chili samples and 12 craft beer samples to match.


  • Chili Sampling Only (10 samples): $30
  • Craft Beer Sampling Tour Only (12 samples, must be 21+): $35
  • Chili & Craft Beer Sampling Combo (10 chili samples and 12 craft beer samples): $50


Tickets are valid for either day, May 21 or May 22. Purchase tickets here.

Check-in begins at 10 a.m. and the sampling tour ends at 4 p.m. For a list of lodging options in Virginia City, visit online.
