Event Details

UPDATE JULY 24, 2020: While we were excited to celebrate our annual World Championship Outhouse Races, it is clear that doing so is becoming a challenge especially in regard to making plans and adhering to current guidelines. With that, we are canceling the event and will look to bring our event lineup to you in 2021. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to visit Virginia City, our merchant shops, museums, attractions and restaurants while following current Phase 2 guidelines.



Potty humor is mandatory at this hilarious and “racy” race. The history of 31st annual World Championship Outhouse dates back to when outdoor plumbing was outlawed in Virginia City and angry residents took to the streets with their outhouses in protest. And a tradition was born.

This outlandish and free event pits teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other in an all-out potty race pushing their home-made, and working, outhouses down C Street toward the toilet paper finish line to claim the latrine title. The Parade of Outhouses begins Saturday at noon with races immediately following.

Interested in racing? The races challenge teams of three costumed outhouse racers to zip down C Street, the town’s main drag, and hit the toilet paper finish line first.
