The Luck o’ the Irish – Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Visitors can tap into Irish history and culture this St. Patrick’s Day at various local, festive events! Foodies, nightlife enthusiasts and athletes of all stripes have plenty to celebrate. The Luck of the Irish lands in Reno Tahoe.

Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry

The historic mining town of Virginia City goes “nuts” for St. Patrick’s Day! The 33rd Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry on March 16 features marching leprechauns, green attractions, and Rocky Mountain Oysters (a delicacy made up of beef and sheep testicles). It’s a fun-filled day of unique eating as professional and amateur chefs compete for the most creative and unique dishes. Cooks from around the West serve up Rocky Mountain Oysters by grilling, frying or smoking them to perfection. It’s a full-on Irish Festival with a beer garden, live Irish music, individual and team oyster-eating contests, a parade and the Ballbreaker Saloon Crawl.

Reno Leprechaun Crawl

The magic returns to downtown Reno on March 16 with the Reno Leprechaun Crawl. Reno’s bar crawl scene is widely celebrated. For those who haven’t experienced it, think of them as massive costume parties for people who want to tour Reno’s nightlife in off-the-wall style. Crawlers can dress in their best green outfit and receive commemorative cups with a map that shows you where to go and what to do. Additionally, these cups provide access to awesome exclusive deals at 20 locations!
