Event Details

Christmas on the Comstock – All Month Long

This December will have you Believing Again with three-weekends of events and a month-long celebration for the entire family surrounded by a historic Victorian setting. Festivities include a parade, concerts, tours, A Comstock Christmas Carole original production, Father Christmas, carriage rides, Christmas trains, letters to Santa, a Christmas Challenge town-wide activity, a shopping spree worth $1,000 and much more.

It’s a real-life vintage Christmas celebration embracing the slower pace and filled with lights and local shops decorated to the hilt all month long. There’s no place like historic Virginia City for that warm and fuzzy, traditional Christmas vibe. This year the town is going all out, all month long. We’ll have you believing again.

Get the ultimate Christmas experience in Virginia City with a sleigh ride to meet Santa Claus! Hop on the sleigh in our Victorian wonderland and ride through town on a journey to the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum & Archives where you’ll meet the star himself. Admission to the museum is included. Bring your own camera.  Sleigh rides are part of our Believe Again celebration taking place December 7 and 14. Cost is $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 3-12 and free for kids under 2.
