Public festivities present a great opportunity for communities to come together and collectively turn the page after experiences like the flooding that forced evacuations in San Jose last month. Whether you enjoy eating green macaroni and cheese, running half marathons, or raising a toast to friends at an authentic Irish pub, there will be no shortage of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this month in San Jose.

GJEL is encouraging our friends in the San Jose and Tri-Valley areas to get out and enjoy themselves on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, and to stay safe by participating in our Drink and Alive Free Cab Ride program.

Read on for a collection of St. Patrick’s Day activities around the San Jose area, and be sure to visit our Free Cab Ride program page for details about how to receive up to $30 back from GJEL for making the decision to not drink and drive on March 17 and 18.
