World Championship Outhouse Races—Cancelled

October 3, 2020 @ 8:00 pm October 4, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

The World Championship Outhouse Races is cancelled in 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021!

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.
