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

All of us at the Sons & Daughters of Erin are hoping to make this the biggest and 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 requirement:
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.
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.
