International Camel Races

September 5-7, 2014




It all started with a Tall Tale from a newspaper man! And here we are 55 years later and still living up to the Legend. Come and see these extraordinary animals race in the desert sand! Each day races will start at High Noon. Gates will open at 10 a.m. And while up here enjoy some other great family activities in and around Virginia City. Great food and drink will be along for the ride. So GIDDY UP Cowboy!
