Event Details

Ready to have a ball… or two? Put the 33rd Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry and St. Patrick’s Day celebration in historic Virginia City at the top of your list. Daring revelers can sample tasty testes from cooks competing for the title of ‘Best Of,’ ‘People’s Choice’ and more. We’re bringing you a whole day of fun with live Irish music, festive drinks, a St. Patrick’s Day parade, costume contest and, of course, Rocky Mountain Oysters served up in a variety of t(e)sty ways. Looking for the ultimate tasting experience? Our cooks can serve up some tasty testes…taste them grilled, smoked, fried, or even in a taco. Go balls out and try them all with our variety of tasting packages. You can even sign up to cook up your own tasty teste batch! Come on, we’ve got the balls, do you? Register as a cook HERE. Don’t forget to wash down those amaze-balls with a delicious drink as part of the St. Paddy Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl. Enjoy our most delectable Irish-themed drinks and sweet treats at Virginia City’s participating historic saloons as they seek your vote for best cocktail and best saloon stop. And remember, dress to impress in your most festive (or outlandish St. Patty’s Day garb). Make a day of it and walk in the parade, join the costume contest, eat some balls and imbibe in the St. Paddy Made Me Do It Saloon Crawl. This is one of the largest, most festive St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the west and it would be pretty unlucky for you to miss out! Register for the parade here. Looking to extend your plans?
