Southern Nevada
Sons & Daughters of Erin


It's almost here...


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 55th 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 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2023. The theme will be "Green With NV".

**** Rain or Shine ****

The festival begins at 5:00pm on Friday, March 10th. 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 11th. 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 closed for this year.

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.

St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Event:

2023 will be our 11th year hosting the St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Event at our Festival. Come have some fun with SNSDOE as we support St Baldrick's and raise some money for Childhood Cancer. This year, for the first time, we will have a St Baldrick's booth with activities happening Saturday from 12 noon until 8:30 pm. The BIG event, Headshaving, will take place on stage starting at 3:00 pm. If you don't want to shave your head you can still sign up to do some fundraising. Either way stop by the booth and say hello! Click the link below to register as a shavee or to sponsor one of teams. We will have several Honored Kids in attendance at this years event. Be sure to stop by the stage to hear about their heroic journeys. You can also view their pages on the St. Baldrick's page.

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.

  • Entries must not be wider than 20 feet or taller than 17 feet.
  • Due to the narrowing of Water 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.
  • NO Water Guns, Water Balloons or Spraying of Water or Silly String are allowed from entries.
  • Absolutely NO objects may be thrown from parade entries.
  • Climbing on and off the float is NOT permitted. No participants are permitted to ride on the front bumpers of parade entries. Those handing out objects to the crowds must NOT approach the floats when turning.
  • All entries must move in a forward line of march/direction with no stopping to perform at any time during the parade. 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 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).
  • In order to lend additional color and flavor to the occasion, and to increase spectator appeal, we request all autos and trucks be decorated from the window down (except special industrial equipment, antique autos and special interest autos). You may display any number of suitable identifying cards relating to your business or organization.
  • 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 animal entries are responsible for cleaning up after their animals.
  • All participants must be dressed in Family Acceptable dress code.

Due to noncompliance with rules, issues with payments and complaints from spectators, we are no longer able to accept entries from political candidates.

We reserve the right to deny an entry if the terms and conditions are not adhered to.

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.
