This tradition dates back to Mark Twain’s residency in Virginia City, and is an experience that you will not want to miss! Bring the whole family to enjoy the unmatched entertainment with a cheering crowd and comedic competition at the annual Camel & Ostrich Races happening on September 6-8.

Each day at the races is filled with excitement. Starting on Friday evening with a special performance, Hot Camel Nights. Then makes sure to come on Saturday for the racing, performances, and a walk down C street for a chance to ride and take photos with the animals.
