Virginia City St. Patrick’s Day Parade

March 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Every year Virginia City celebrates St. Patrick’s day with fun, festive gatherings decked out in green. This year in consideration of Governor Sisolak’s guidelines in response to the pandemic, Virginia City is making modifications to the day’s activities while strongly encouraging patrons to celebrate responsibly.

A cruise will take the place of the traditional St. Patrick’s Day parade. While we ask that people don’t congregate along the boardwalk, everyone is encouraged to drive through Virginia City and participate in the cruise. The cruise runs from 12 to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 12. Cruise participant line-up starts at the Fourth Ward School, located at the junction of U.S. Routes 342 and 341 at C Street, starting at 11 a.m. Registration is not required but festive Irish and St. Patrick’s Day decorations are encouraged. No walking groups, animal groups or passing out of candy will be allowed. Spectators will be asked not to congregate along the boardwalk and those that do will be asked to follow social distancing guidelines. ATV/OHVs are allowed to participate during the cruise hour only.
