Event Details



Thank you for the overwhelming support! Because of this, the only tickets now available are a Sunday-only option. Tickets already purchased are valid for either day.

As the weather warms up, so does the chili with Virginia City’s 38th annual Chili on the Comstock and Craft Beer Tour! Head up to the historic mining town Saturday and Sunday, May 22-23, 2021, for tasty chili samples from award-winning cooks and refreshing beer samples with the Craft Beer Tour. With major modifications to this annual event to accommodate current guidelines, Chili on the Comstock is sure to be a hoot for all the chili lovers out there.

This year’s Chili on the Comstock and Craft Beer Tour has participants sampling chili and craft brews from various merchants and booths spread out in zones around Virginia City giving visitors the chance to discover more of the historic mining town than ever before. Ticket options give attendees the option of sampling from 12 chili booths including professional and local chefs, 12 craft beer samples, or for a better value and even more fun, a combination of the two.

Each Chili Sampling Only ticket gives purchasers access to 12 cooks, four in each of the three chili zones. If that’s not enough chili for one day, additional packages can be purchased.

The Craft Beer Tour gives ticket holders the chance to sample delicious craft beers along in each of the chili zones, plus some local saloons and bars. There’s really no better way to each chili than with a refreshing craft beer.

The Chili & Craft Beer Sampling Combo gives ticket holders the best value with 12 chili samples and 12 craft beer samples to match. The best way to spend the day!



Chili Sampling Only (12 samples): $25

Craft Beer Sampling Tour Only (must be 21+): $30

Chili & Craft Beer Sampling Combo: $45
