What better way is there to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day downtown than by drinking green beer, pinching people who aren’t wearing green, and catching a free fireworks show?
Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
Downtown Las Vegas is a popular destination for locals and tourists to come and celebrate the day. People come together and celebrate with fun party games and a photo booth.

About St. Patrick’s Day
Historically, the holiday was created in the early 17th century to celebrate the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It is celebrated yearly on March 17th, the day that Saint Patrick died. St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the culture and heritage of the Irish and celebrations usually include parades, festivals, wearing green, and shamrocks.
Traditionally, the restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted on St. Patrick’s Day, which has encouraged the tradition of consuming a lot of alcohol on the holiday.
Although St. Patrick’s Day isn’t directly an American holiday, we Americans just like the Irish, love any excuse to throw a parade and drink a lot of beer, so we adopted the tradition. If you’re looking for more activities to celebrate the holiday in downtown Vegas, you can see if you have the luck of the Irish and try your hand in the casino.
This year, St. Patrick’s Day is on a Sunday, which makes it the perfect day to drink a lot, party downtown, and have a spectacular Sunday Funday.
