The International Camel & Ostrich Races started as a prank between two newspaper editors more than 60 years ago and is now one of the most beloved and hilarious family events in the west, and this town’s favorite tradition. The 63rd annual International Camel & Ostrich Races bring the laughs for the whole family as jockeys, both professional and amateur, race their camels, ostriches and zebras around the track to the roars of the crowd. You never know what might happen. A comical racing spectacle that leaves the entire family laughing, the event includes a fair-like midway with vendors and treats for the family. You can even catch a ride on a camel – a photo op not to be missed.
With four shows to choose from, there’s no reason to miss this fan-favorite event. Friday night, Sept. 9, enjoy Hot Camel Nights, an evening show with discounted rates for locals. Saturday, Sept. 10 catch the 10 a.m. or the 2 p.m. show. Sunday, Sept. 11 is Family Day with a show at noon.
Make a weekend of it! Plan ahead and book a room for the International Camel & Ostrich Races before it sells out. View Virginia City’s lodging options here.
