International Outhouse Race Mackinaw City
Winterfest's Biggest Attraction! Outhouse Racers Wanted! 
Create an Outhouse or register to a team race one of ours.

Join in the Outhouse Races Saturday at 2pm on the Shepler Lot located on Huron Ave and Central Ave next to the Dixie Saloon and Oreilly's Irish Pub. This novelty event starts with the parade of outhouses which proves to be colorful and entertaining. Prizes vary but judging for "Best of Show" has to do with design, decor and team theme or "just because".

The races are open to adult and junior teams. This year the prize money is sponsored by area businesses. Rules are as follows: The outhouse must be 4x4x6 on skis. Must have a 5 person team, one inside and 4 outside to push or pull. Must have a toilet seat. Must have material to wipe with. Entry must have a name. Entrants under 18 must have a parent's signature and all teams/participants must sign a waiver.

This event is coordinated by the Dixie Saloon and friends. The purse will be $500.00 this year for first place.
