Multi-cultural Street Feasts

There are a huge variety of Street Feasts taking place across Ireland on June 12th.

Here are 4 multi-cultural Street Feasts that will be vibrant and colourful. We had a chat with some of the organisers to get a sense of what their international feasts are going to look like.

Nadja – Fusion Sundays Street Feast

We will have a big table out the front with bunting and music and possibly a bellydance performance. I am encouraging stallholders to bring food from their various countries to share and create a multi-cultural hotpot. Besides there will obviously be international street-food on offer that people can buy and share at the table

Magdalena – Latin American Street Feast

We are a community group named Latin American Mums in Ireland. We have over 240 members who together with their families participate in various events we organize through the year. Our members are from all over Latin America including Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Cuba, Uruguay between others.

Our main event is our Latin American Christmas Family party that we hold every December and its attended by around 150 people incl adults and children. This year we had decided to introduce a summer event such as a picnic in a park to meet up and strengthen our group. For this reason, we found the Street Feast Event a great opportunity and we will be holding our event in The Visitor’s Centre at Phoenix Park.

So far 18 families have registered with us, and the Brazilian mums community group is going to join us in the celebration as well.We think it’s a fantastic opportunity and we hope the good weather will join us for the day.

Charlotte – Iftar Night

As Street Feast falls within the time of Ramadan we have been asked how those who are observing Ramadan can take part in the big day. We spoke to Charlotte Bishop from Human Appeal to explain to us what their plans are for their Iftar Night Feast. Find out more here.

Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland on 11th June, hosted by you and your neighbours. They can be anywhere really - out on the street, in a local park or in your front garden.

There are lots of good reasons to have a Street Feast, but it's really just a great excuse to eat great food, celebrate your local community and meet new people who live near you.
