Event Details

Wipe your calendars for the first weekend in October for the 32nd World Championship Outhouse Races, Oct. 7-8 right here on C Street in Virginia City. This free event dates back to when outdoor plumbing was outlawed and our angry residents took to the streets with their outhouses in protest – and the tradition was born. Way to go!

This hilarious event pits teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other in an all-out potty race as they push their homemade outhouses down C Street toward the toilet paper finish line all to claim the top latrine title of Grand Champion. The Parade of Outhouses begins each day at noon with races immediately following.

Think you can push pretty hard? Register your team of outhouse racers and push your outhouse in front of a crowd of cheering, laughing spectators. Heck, you could even earn a cash prize for number one!

Not sure how to build a racing outhouse? That’s okay. We have a limited number of racing shacks we can provide on a first-come, first-served basis. Or we can provide plans to build your own throne.

Ready to roll?

  • Learn how you can build your own World Championship Outhouse. We’ll provide the specifications and registration information.
  • Or if you have an outhouse, register your team.
  • Become a vendor.

Make a weekend of it! Plan ahead and book a room in town. View our lodging options here.
