Fourth of July on the Comstock rocks. Virginia City offers one of the region’s longest firework displays. Echoing off Mt. Davidson for nearly 30 minutes, you'll feel the boom in your bones this Independence Day as the fireworks soar high above the town and into Six Mile Canyon, making it visible from nearly anywhere in town.

The Virginia City Fourth of July Celebration also includes a Fourth of July Parade, a raffle and auction, the Comstock Cowboys Second Amendment Concert. Throughout the day, visitors can stroll the boardwalk, sample sweets, browse the shops and ride the V&T Railroad short line.

Looking for a way to get here? Take the 4th of July Special steam train ride from Carson City to Virginia City. For more information and tickets visit vtrailway.com.
