Event Details

UPDATE: As a follow up to Storey County’s declaration of emergency and the Governor’s proclamation, Storey County has directed the Virginia City Tourism Commission to postpone or cancel all events for the next 60 days. This wasn’t something that the county wanted to do, but it was apparent that it needed to be done.

We have already begun coordination with the events to reschedule where possible and will provide updates as we learn more.

With that, our 37th annual Chili on the Comstock is being postponed. We hope to announce a new date shortly.

Thanks for your understanding and patience. Stay safe!


Spicy, mild, red or verde? Pick your favorite at the 37th annual Chili on the Comstock, beckoning the best chili cooks in the west for a powerful and delicious cook-off. Chili cooks come from around the west to 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 in 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.
