Virginia City goes nuts for St. Patrick’s Day!
Have a ball, or two, in historic Virginia City joining 7,000 other daring revelers for a party that only the Comstock could throw. Sample tasty testes from cooks competing for the title of Best Rocky Mountain Oyster Cook in the West! Cooks prepare these “delecta-ball” delicacies in a way that’ll make you forget what you’re really eating. Taste them grilled, smoked, fried or even in a taco. Go balls out and try them all!
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 online. Get the complete testes tasting pass and become a VIB—Very Important Baller—with five “Fastpasses” to skip the line at your favorite booths.
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 testy festy is the place to be for St. Patrick’s Day, complete with music and the most outlandish St. Patrick’s Day atmosphere found west of the Mississippi. A souvenir cup grants you one free beer and a variety of samples at Virginia City’s participating historic saloons. All crawl participants receive discounts on full specialty drink orders.
