The Strip’s largest St. Patrick’s Day celebration, Celtic Feis, returns to New York-New York Hotel & Casino for a three-day bash on the Brooklyn Bridge, March 15-17. The weekend-long Irish festival will feature two parades, live music, entertainment and traditional Irish fare at the adjacent Nine Fine Irishmen.
“In its 10th year, New York-New York’s Celtic Feis celebration is a beloved tradition and this year will be the biggest yet,” said Brent Cook, Vice President of Food and Beverage at New York-New York Hotel & Casino. “We take great pride in creating the ultimate Irish experience for Las Vegas locals and visitors alike, an experience that has become one of the liveliest St. Patrick’s Day events on The Strip.”
Festivities kick off Friday afternoon, March 15 at 2 p.m. with a parade starting at Bliss Dance at The Park and continuing through the property to the celebration headquarters on the Brooklyn Bridge. Following the procession, the 2019 inductees into New York-New York’s famous “Wall of Fine” will be announced, recognizing employees who’ve gone above and beyond throughout the year. A Guinness welcome toast will follow to get the party started. The parade is complimentary and open to the public.
