Event Details

UPDATE JULY 24, 2020: While we were excited to celebrate our annual Chili on the Comstock, 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.



JUNE 18, 2020 UPDATE: The 37th annual Chili on the Comstock has been rescheduled! We can’t wait to see you on the Comstock October 10-11, 2020. The chili will be hot and the beer will be cold – perfect for a chilly October day. See what we did there?

All current guidelines in place at the time of the event will be enforced and the event date is subject to change. We encourage everyone to follow social distancing and best practices to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community and our visitors healthy and safe.

This event beckons the best chili cooks in the west for a powerful and delicious cook-off. Chili cooks compete for your vote of best chili cook and people’s choice. Endless varieties of tasty chili are sampled all down C Street, along with vendors and more.

And what’s chili without beer? Join in on the Craft Beer Tour and enjoy plenty of cold, refreshing brews poured from stops around town and at the Chili on the Comstock Craft Beer Lounge. The $25 cost includes 14 samples plus choice of one full beer inside the Craft Beer Lounge along with a map and description of each beer. The tour runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
