Virginia City International Camel and Ostrich Races
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.
