Christmas on the Comstock in Virginia City



Ready to redefine your new favorite holiday tradition? There’s no better place to usher in the magic of the holiday season than with a month-long celebration in Virginia City. Lasting the entire month of December, the historic Nevada mining town’s Christmas on the Comstock brings a Victorian-era holiday celebration alive with special events happening all over town, all month long. From the Christmas tree lighting to live music, holiday saloon crawls, historic train rides, local craft fairs, and a visit from Santa Claus himself, be sure Christmas on the Comstock is on your December to-do list.

Each December, the cozy mining town of Virginia City transforms into a real-life vintage Christmas book, embracing the slower pace of the holiday spirit with lights and shops decorated to the hilt.

Get in on all types of holiday festivities fit for every age, like unique boutique holiday shopping, the traditional Parade of Christmas Lights, old-fashioned carriage rides offered by Borges Sleigh and Carriage Rides, letters to Santa, historic town tours, the all-new Christmas Challenge, and beyond. Sign up for the Grinch Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl and sample specialty spirits in historic saloons all over town, listen to the locally beloved Comstock Cowboys live in concert, catch the Comstock Christmas Carol at Piper’s Opera House, or board the V&T Candy Cane Express with the whole fam for a ride you won’t forget.
