Council Gives Its Support To ‘Street Feast’ Event

Posted by


THE Community Department of Kerry County Council and the Kerry Public Participation Network (PPN) are delighted to support Street Feast again this year – the nationwide day of street parties, community celebrations and neighbourhood lunches, which is taking place across the country on Sunday, June 10.

It’s a simple idea: Street Feasts can be held anywhere – on the pavement, in a laneway or a local park, but it’s really just a great excuse to eat great food, celebrate your local community and meet new people who live near you.

They can be any size, from two to 2,000 people. Everyone is invited to bring something to contribute, be it a tasty dish, some chairs or a musical instrument.

Established in 2010, Street Feast has grown steadily year on year with over 1,300 events held nationwide in 2017 and over 120,000 people taking part.

The initiative aims to build and strengthen communities through sharing of food and conversation, culture and knowledge.

Facilitating social inclusion, multiculturalism and diversity in an age-friendly, all-inclusive environment, Street Feast creates more resilient, safer and healthier communities.

Those interested in celebrating Street Feast should register online at They will be provided with free DIY packs with decorations, invites, posters and flyers and other supports.  You can also contact the Community Department of Kerry County Council on 066 7183672.
