THE ANNUAL SILICON VALLEY FLEADH

The word Fleadh, pronounced “Fla”, is the Gaelic word for Festival. It is a gathering and celebration of Irish culture and traditions bringing people together to share festivities, happiness and joy. Returning to downtown Mountain View for its third year, the Silicon Valley Irish Fleadh expands upon the famous traditional Irish hospitality to embrace and encompass all our surrounding communities.

This two-day event features Irish performers both traditional and modern, Irish dancers, Irish arts & crafts, Irish food vendors and a Kids’ Zone.

The event is presented by St. Stephen’s Green Irish Foundation, a non-profit 501 (c)(3), which promotes Irish heritage in the community. Beneficiaries from the foundation have been Mountain View Veterans Memorial, CHAC, Berkeley Tragedy Fund and Mountain View Education Foundation.

St Stephens Green is an Irish Bar & Restaurant in the heart of Silicon Valley and for 15yrs has been serving up a taste of Ireland in Downtown Mountain View. We are excited to host this event and invite you to come and enjoy the weekend with us.
