The day will soon be here. We’ve been plotting and planning for months now hoping to spread the street feasting word.
This weekend there will be bunting galore, table spreads, chairs arranged, food shared and importantly neighbours chatting and connecting. Our hope is that strangers will become friends and new links sparked. It is such a simple thing- to share food, to chat, to connect, to commune.
There are lots of feasts happening across the country. To find one near to you, view the map on our website here.
If you are unable to make it to one in your local neighbourhood, some fun Street Feast happenings are also taking place in Dublin City Centre this weekend.
Tomorrow, 16th June, we’ll be dining at 1pm on Fade Street as part of the Yestival Bike Festival. Bring a dish to share and then stick around to check out all things bike and pedal power as a celebration of the best way to get around the city!
Then on Sunday 17th, it is the big day.
Le Cool Magazine will be hosting a big feast in Temple Bar square, as part of the national celebrations. If you are interested in joining them, just drop them an email and tell them what dish you will be bringing. You can find out more about the event here. And you can join their facebook event here.
There will be lost of neighborhood feasts happening across the country, with lots of fun treats in store. In Rialto, for instance, the kids from the local creche will be showcasing some of their art work on the community garden railings and some local musicians will be coming along to play. Meanwhile over in Harold’s Cross the kids will be performing their very own play, written especially for the occasion. Over the canal on Synge Street the Mr. Whippy Sound system will be banging out some juicy vibes and in Lucky Lane in Stoneybatter they’ll be bar-be-quing. The Sitric Picnic in Stoneybatter will also be in full swing. And that is just a small sample… there will lots more feasts in Dublin and also in Galway, Cork, Kilkenny, Mayo and Wicklow.
So whatever the weather, we know there will be fun in store. We just wish we could clone ourselves and get to them all!
Huge shout out to all the Street Feast hosts across the country who are helping to make all this happen- you are all brilliant!
Happy Feasting Everyone!
From Clare, David, Samuel and Sarah- the Street Feast team
