The Philadelphia Fleadh, now in it's 8th year has been chosen by Good Morning America as one of 5 Top Authentic Irish Events in the U.S.   Due to the Global Pandemic, the 2020 Philadelphia Fleadh Irish Festival, scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2020 was a Virtual Fleadh where all performers went live throughout the day on The Philadelphia Fleadh Irish Festival Facebook page.   

The live festival has been moved to Saturday, May 8th, 2021 at The National Guard Armory in Northeast Philadelphia.    All tickets that were already purchased for the May 9th event in 2020 will be honored on the new date; so you do not need new tickets.   Going forward in 2021 and beyond, there will be two annual Fleadhs to mark your calendar for: The Philadelphia Fleadh at The National Guard Armory in Philadelphia on the second Saturday in May, and The Fall Fleadh at Trifecta Sporting Club in Bensalem on the first Saturday in October.

The Fleadh is the Philadelphia area's biggest annual Irish-American Festival with multiple stages featuring live Celtic Rock, Traditional Irish music and dance, shopping, vendors, food, spirits, kids activities and more.  This year's entertainment includes the Best in Philly, as well as some amazing National and International Acts.   Bring your instruments and dancing shoes to join the sessions with world renowned experts and jam with other like minded musicians.  Hosted by John Byrne and Bill Whitman, the trad sessions have grown to be one of the most anticipated events at the Philly Fleadh.  

This year we will once again feature The Celtic Flame School of Irish Dance's

Feis at The Fleadh, an open platform Irish dance competition open to all schools.  There will also be dance performances by different Irish dance schools throughout the day.

Don't forget kids under the age of 12 are free, so invite the cousins, plan a family reunion, and make it a fun and affordable family tradition!  There is no risk with purchasing tickets ahead of time and getting the 20% discount because there is a rain date of Sunday May 4th for the Fall Fleadh, and an indoor option for the Philly Fleadh.

Paddy Whack Irish Sports Pub  will host THE OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY which will have Special Drink Specials, $4 Guinness Pints and $4 Pops McCann Whiskey for those with Ticket Stubs! Free Overnight Parking at Paddy Whacks too!
