Virginia City Nevada...St Patty's Day events 3/11-3/12


Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival and St. Patrick's Day Parade

Holy Molly...our little town is packed today...last years event was busy but this years event is spectacular {hard to find parking spots they be a parking everywhere}....tis good to see patriots and all celebrating a time honer'd event...the beer is cold the food is good...and music plays as the parade rocked...y'all come on up....!  The hard life and good times of the Comstock are remembered throughout town in its saloons. No other type of business dominates the landscape of this historic mining town, where there once were as many as 115 bars and saloons. Many saloons have maintained their 19th century appearance and stepping in their doors is like stepping back in time. A visitor today can get much more than their favorite cocktail at any one of the town's ten bars; they'll get a history lesson and an experience to last a lifetime.


Have a ball, or two, in historic Virginia City this St. Patrick’s Day. Each year, more than 3,000 daring connoisseurs sample tasty testes from cooks competing for the title of Best Rocky Mountain Oyster Cook in the West! Cooks from around the west fry, smoke or grill these delectable concoctions in a way that will make you forget what you’re really eating. Go balls out and try them all. Dress in your most outlandish St. Patty’s Day garb, walk in the parade, join the costume contest and get in on the Ballbreaker Saloon Crawl. This full-on Irish testicle festival is the place to be for St. Patrick’s Day, complete with a beer garden, music and the lively atmosphere found only in Virginia City.

Last years event....busy but this year is even busier:
