Street Feast is now a growing international movement of street parties and community celebrations! It all started 10 years ago, when 30 neighborhoods across Ireland came together to organise their very own gatherings. What started out as a local solution to building stronger communities and to tackle loneliness and isolation in Ireland has grown from strength to strength.
Since its small beginnings 400,000 neighbours have joined in the fun, and these numbers are growing every year. You can get in on it too by hosting a feast in your neighbourhood. It can be anywhere really – out on the street, in a local park or in your front yard.
Last year we did a trial run in Minnesota, United States, and were delighted that 20 Street Feast hosts registered to take part. The good news is that we are continuing to trial it in the US and we are hoping to expand Street Feast to Australia later this year.
If you’re not in Minnesota or Melbourne, but you’d like to make Street Feast happen in your area or another country, get in touch with us. You can email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org
