Over 1,000 Streat Feast parties will be taking place this Sunday 10th June right across Ireland.
This will be the 9th annual street feast day, which has been growing in numbers every year from when it started back in 2010.
There will be feasts in every county in Ireland taking place in cul de sacs, parks, footpaths, laneways, car parks, fields and front gardens.
Street Feast is an Irish local community building initiative and is an all-for-fun, do-it-yourself,
not-for-profit celebration. The project invites individuals, groups or clubs to share food and
conversation with others in their neighbourhood in a nationwide act of community and friendship. The all-inclusive, age-friendly initiative aims to encourage active participation, strengthen community
connections and reduce isolation. Everyone is encouraged to bring something along to share,
whether it be a dish, a chair or a tune.
Patron of Street Feast, President Michael D Higgins congratulated the initiative;
“We must all by now realise the importance of community, inclusion, creativity and togetherness - all"
