Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry canceled amid COVID-19 health concerns

First and foremost, Virginia City is open for business. Tourism is vital to our state and to our community. We depend on our visitors to shop in our merchant stores, eat in our restaurants and stay in our hotels. With the health and welfare of our attendees, vendors, residents and Storey County community being paramount, it is with deep regret that we will be canceling our annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry and St. Patrick’s Day Parade. While the state has not directly mandated this, we are taking this as a precautionary measure to support social distancing recommendations and large gatherings. 

We are working and planning into the future regarding resilience of our local and county businesses, county government and our county residents.

Ticket holders will be notified on the process of refunds.
