Centenary Street Feast 2016 – A round up!

We are absolutely delighted to confirm that thousands of people today took part in Centenary Street Feast parties throughout the country – the largest number of Street Feasts on record! On the last count over 1,200 parties took place involving circa 120,000 people, representing a fivefold increase on last year – over 100,000 people more than last year! Incredible! We know there are a few feasts that were postponed due to the bad forecast; we look forward to seeing your photos in the coming weeks!

Here are a bunch of tweets, instagram posts and photos from the day. *Please visit our press page for press release and hi-res photo releases.

If your feast hasn’t been featured, don’t despair! We have been overwhelmed by the huge number of photos; we’ll pop them up over the coming days.

Celebrations at Lennox Place are still going, some little drizzle won't scare them! #streetfeast2016

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.
