World Championship Outhouse Races

October 3 - 4, 2020

86 SOUTH C STREET
VIRGINIA CITY, NV 89440

Ready, Set, Push!

The 31st annual World Championship Outhouse Races is yet another quirky Virginia City experience that's also uniquely Nevada!

Dating back to a time when outdoor plumbing was outlawed on the Comstock, angry residents took to the streets in protest with their outhouses and a tradition was born.

This hilarious free event pits teams of costumed racers against each other in an all-out potty sprint, pushing their home-made outhouses down C Street toward the toilet paper finish line and the latrine title.

The Parade of Outhouses begins Saturday at noon with races immediately following.

For more information and a schedule of events, and to plan your trip to Virginia City and Northwestern Nevada, dial the Virginia City Visitors Center at (775) 847-7500 or click Visit Virginia City.
