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 Parade & Festival
will be at the Water Street District in Henderson, NV, on March 13th, 14th and 15th, 2020. The theme will be “The Leprechauns Made Me Do It”.


**** Rain or Shine ****

The festival begins at 5:00pm on Friday, March 13th, 2020. There will be a carnival with rides and games, a car show, Irish step dance performances, live entertainment, food, vendors and more.


Parade Information:

The parade kicks off at 10:00am sharp Saturday, March 14, 2019. Due to significant construction on Water Street, the parade route will be shortened, beginning at Atlantic and continuing down Water Street to Victory. Due to the size and popularity of the parade, it is important that we get the parade entries in as soon as possible. Due to the reduced parade route length, We will be limiting the parade to 70 entries this year. 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 are many vendor opportunities available for both resale and food sales. All vendor booking and pricing is done through the City of Henderson. Find out more information at the City of Henderson website. Scroll down to the Vendor section about 3/4 of the way down their page.

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 13th, 14th and 15th, 2020. The theme this year is "The Leprechauns Made Me Do It”.

The parade will start at 10:00 AM. Saturday, March 14, 2020. Due to significant construction on Water Street, the parade route will be shortened, beginning at Atlantic and continuing down Water Street to Victory.

Due to the size and popularity of the parade, it is important that we get the parade entries in as soon as possible. The construction will reduce the length of the parade route, therefore we must limit the parade to 70 entries. Vehicle entries will be limited to 10 units.

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.

We have to ask 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.
