Christmas on the Comstock
Month of December
We host our annual Christmas on the Comstock this December, offering a Victorian-style holiday celebration. This small mining town feels like a real-life vintage Christmas book embracing the slower pace of the holiday spirit with lights and shops decorated to the hilt. Festivities for all ages range from unique boutique holiday shopping, specials, a lighted Christmas parade and more. Have some spirited fun on the Grinch Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl, featuring specialty holiday drinks at participating saloons. End the evening with the annual Comstock Cowboys Christmas in the Sierra concert at Piper’s Opera House.
Grinch Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl
Kick off your holiday season at Christmas on the Comstock, December 2, with a little spirited fun where designated drivers are rewarded for being "Rudolph." Sample a wide variety of holiday-themed specialty drinks that only saloons of Virginia City pour. Designated drivers receive a special cup good for unlimited free non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day as well as a Virginia City Christmas on the Comstock Santa hat plus the chance to win a $50 gas card.
The crawl makes stops at our saloons located within the heart of our historic district, approximately a mile long, however for those that may need a lift, we recommend:
Uber, available through the Uber app
Golf Cart (weather permitting) 775-230-5682
All crawl participants receive discounts on full specialty drink orders. Visit all the saloons and be entered to win the grand prize.
Parade of Lights
The Comstock shines bright with Christmas cheer during the month of December but it shines brightest during the Parade of Lights. Join the festive parade Dec. 2 at 5 pm.
Christmas in the Sierra Concert
For more Christmas on the Comstock fun, enjoy the Christmas in the Sierra concert at Piper’s Opera House, featuring David John & the Comstock Cowboys. Bring your cowboy boots and Santa hat to this boot-stomping good time, an annual holiday tradition in Virginia City! Dec. 3 at Piper’s Opera House. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
