Welcome to the NEW home of everything Irish in Southern Nevada!












About Us

The Southern Nevada Sons & Daughters of Erin is a non-profit organization, open to all folks with an interest in promoting Irish heritage and culture, enjoying camaraderie and serving those less fortunate in our community.

The club was started in 1966, right here in Las Vegas, by a group of 15 Irishmen who banded together to celebrate their Irish heritage, have some fun and serve the local community through their good deeds. These same ideals hold true today!

We now come together monthly for our membership meetings to socialize, conduct business, and work on new projects and charitable efforts. We also plan regular social activities such as attending sporting events, dinners, bowling, 4x4 trips, golf, hiking, pub crawls, and more.

The Sons & Daughters also organize the annual ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARADE & FESTIVAL in downtown Henderson, Nevada. We are proud to work alongside the City of Henderson to offer one of the largest celebrations in the country, featuring a huge parade, carnival, beer garden, shopping, food vendors, and more! All of our work in the community is accomplished through the hard work of our members and we are always looking for new members.

So BE GREEN and join the Southern Nevada Sons & Daughters of Erin today!

Parade and Festival

The 54th Annual Sons & Daughters of Erin St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival will take place in the Water Street District in downtown Henderson, NV, on March 11th, 12th, and 13th, 2022. The theme will be "The Leprechauns Made Me Do It".


**** Rain or Shine ****

The festival begins at 5:00pm on Friday, March 11th. There will be a carnival with rides and games, classic cars, Irish step dance performances, live entertainment, food, vendors and more.


Parade Information:

The parade kicks off at 10:00am sharp Saturday, March 12th. Due to the size and popularity of the parade, it is important that we get the parade entries checked in as soon as possible. Early check in will be made available prior to the parade date. Due to the reduced width of Water St, all vehicle processions will need to be kept to single file.


Registration is now open!

Before submitting your entry, please scroll down and read the Parade Entry Terms and Conditions.


All entries will be judged in one of four categories:
Celtic Pride, Luck O' the Irish, Apple of my Eye, and St Patrick's Choice.


Vendor Information:

There will be many vendor opportunities available for both resale and food sales. All vendor booking and pricing will be done through the City of Henderson once they set up their 2022 Festival page.


St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Event:

2022 will be our 10th year hosting the St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Event at our Festival. The event date & time will be announced here so keep checking back.


Classic Car Information:

To be announced. Watch this site for updates.


Parade Entry Terms and Conditions:

The 54th Annual Sons & Daughters of Erin St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival takes place in the Water Street District, Downtown Henderson, March 11th, 12th and 13th, 2022. The theme this year is "The Leprechauns Made Me Do It".

Deadline for entries is Feb 27th.

If you do not receive your confirmation email within 3 days, please email us directly at parade@snsdoe.com.

Entry numbers, staging times & maps will be sent out via email no later than March 2nd.

We are once again asking for an entry fee of $50 for each parade unit. This fee goes toward offsetting our costs for facilitating the parade each year. Your fee can be paid on our website below via PayPal or you can mail your check or money order to:
Sons of Erin
P.O. Box 749
Las Vegas, Nevada 89125

Every year we strive to have the best parade that Southern Nevada has ever seen. We need your support to make that happen.
Please follow the rules below.

Due to changes in the Water Street area and narrowing of the street in some parts, we must limit the number of vehicles allowed in entries to 15. Cars must go down single file for one block in front of Lifeguard Arena.

We need ask again that items not be thrown to the crowds from vehicles. You may walk & hand out items, but please do not throw them. Our children's safety comes first.

All entries must move in a forward line of march/direction with no stopping for performances. If you are handing out anything, or intermingling with the spectators in any way, please allow the parade to keep moving past you and you can catch up with your group.

In order to lend additional color and flavor to the occasion, and to increase spectator appeal, we request the following minimum decoration requirements:

  • All autos and trucks should be decorated from window down (except special industrial equipment, antique autos and special interest autos).
  • Entries must not be wider than 20 feet or taller than 17 feet.
  • You may display any number of suitable identifying cards relating to your business or organization.
  • In order for the announcers/commentators to identify your entry, your entry number must be displayed on the right hand side of your entry (preferrably at the front).

No alcohol will be allowed in the parade staging area or is to be consumed or carried by the parade participants during the parade.

All participants must be dressed in Family Acceptable dress code. NO Water Guns, Water Balloons or Spraying of Water or Silly String are allowed from entries. We reserve the right to deny an entry if the terms and conditions are not adhered to.

All animal entries are responsible for cleaning up after their animals.

Thank you again for your parade entry. We look forward to seeing you at this year's event. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail or phone.
