Virginia City Western Style Street Party

Virginia City, Nev.

Virginia City Party
Historic Virginia City, Nev., is the setting for our western-style street party on Friday, July 27.

In the mid-19th century, Virginia City was the most important industrial city between Denver and San Francisco, and its silver and gold mines made millionaires out of prospectors from all over the world. Today, the original charm of the town remains intact, with shops, museums and restaurants lining the main street’s wooden sidewalks. Join us as we step back in time in the iconic and picturesque mining town of Virginia City. Enjoy an authentic western cookout, not to mention an unforgettable ride to and from the event against the stunning backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

When and Where: Virginia City Party, Historic Street “C” Dinner service begins at 6 pm
