2017 Reno Tahoe Events and Festivals

World Championship Outhouse Races

Virginia City
October 5, 2013 -October 6, 2013


This hilarious Comstock tradition pits teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other. One person rides and the remaining team members push, pull or drag the decorated outhouses down the racetrack.
There will be a chance to vote for the ugliest, the prettiest, the most unusual outhouses, etc. during the People’s Choice Awards on Saturday. All races take place on “C” street (the main drag) in downtown Virginia City.
Typical outhouse themes vary in styles, décor, and originality, leaving the entries completely up to the imagination of the team and the company, group, or family that it represents. This makes for interesting renditions of artistic license! Some of the entrants from past years include “The Flapper Crappers”, “The Haunted Outhouse”, “Alice In Pottyland”, “The Potty Poopers”, “The Urinator”, and “The Golden Throne” whose team comes all the way from San Jose, CA!
