Update July 24, 2020: While we were excited to celebrate our annual International Camel and Ostrich 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.
In an event as hilarious as it sounds, the 61st International Camel & Ostrich Races will have you bursting with laughter for an all-out family-friendly event. Watch as camels, ostriches and even zebras gather in Virginia City to carry their daring riders across the finish line as the crowd goes wild. It’s a comical racing spectacle that the entire family will enjoy.
You can even catch a ride on a camel – a photo op not to be missed. Once again in 2020, Hot Camel Nights – a special Friday evening performance – offers a chance to spend an evening in Virginia City. Choose from shaded seating options and a VIP experience that allows you to see the entire racing action and enjoy a meal. Sunday is Dolan Automotive Family Day with free camel rides for the first 100 kids.
