March is a busy month for Vegas. Pools officially open, St. Patrick’s Day brings in plenty of shenanigans, March Madness fills up the city’s sports books not to mention the usual concerts and comedians to hit the Strip. Here’s what’s happening in Vegas this March:

Pennzoil 400 Weekend:
Speed into March at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the Pennzoil 400 Weekend March 1-3, 2019. The weekend includes your favorite drivers, as well as the one-of-a-kind Neon Garage featuring live music and entertainment, driver introduction, and of course the Pennzoil 400, as well as the Boyd Gaming 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race, and the Strat 300 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race.

One Night for One Drop:
The annual One Night for One Drop returns Friday, March 8 at the Bellagio. The charity event features Cirque du Soleil cast and crew as they donate their talent to create a unique and breathtaking theatrical spectacle in support of One Drop, an international foundation dedicated to providing access to safe water. This year’s edition will take place on International Women’s Day.

St. Patrick’s Day:
Vegas will see green on March 17 for St. Patrick’s Day. The city loves a good party and St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest of the year with bars, restaurants and nightclubs pouring green beer, serving up Irish fare and dancing an Irish jig or two. Some popular Irish pubs to check out include Ri Ra Irish Pub at Mandalay Bay, Hennessy’s Tavern on Fremont Street Experience, McMullan’s Irish Pub, Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York, O’Shea’s Casino & Bar at LINQ Promenade and McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon at Town Square.

March Mayhem:
Place a bet on the NCAA college basketball tournament this March. Games begin on March 19 and most Vegas bars and clubs offer food and drink specials for catching the games on big screen televisions.
