Event Details

Mark Twain’s time in Nevada was fast, furious, and left a lasting impact. The region and Twain were changed forever and the dust he kicked up has never quite settled. To carry on with what Mark Twain loved most about Nevada—the characters, the excitement, and the spirit of the west—we invite you to the Mark Twain Days Festival in Virginia City and Downtown Carson City. Discover yourself like Samuel Clemens did when he left Missouri to find his true identity in Nevada with art, music, literary events, neighborhood tours and so much more. Take the Twain Train up to Virginia City on Friday, May 10 or drive yourself throughout the weekend! Full Virginia City schedule of events below.
