3-DAY EVENT – SEPTEMBER 10-12
The world is ready to pick up where we left off in 2019, and you can count on Virginia City’s bizarre yet wildly entertaining annual International Camel & Ostrich Races to return in 2021. In an event as hilarious as it sounds, the 62nd annual event will have you bursting with laughter for an all-out family-friendly day. 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.
