National Day of Street Parties and Community Celebrations

24 Street Parties planned in Donegal so far …


 Street Parties 379x269 take 2


With 24 street parties already planned for Donegal, the 7th Annual Street Feast Day, which is to be held on Sunday, 12th June 2016, looks set to be a great success.


Street parties are already planned in Killybegs, Castlefinn, Gleneely, Gortahork, Milford, Manorcunningham and Letterkenny and there is still time to organise one in your own area.


Street Feast is an Irish local community initiative and this year is part of the State’s 1916 / 2016 Centenary Celebrations.  Street Feast is a not-for-profit, all-for-fun, do-it-yourself celebration.  The initiative invites an individual, or a group of neighbours, or a club, to host a lunch on their street, in a local park or in their front gardens – inviting other neighbours to come along and join them.  


It is hoped that in some small way, a Street Feast will bring communities together and help tackle the sense of isolation that some people experience.  Everyone is encouraged to bring something along.  In partnership with the Centenary Programme, Street Feast is calling on people nationwide to come together at 12.00 noon on Sunday, 12th June to enjoy a bite to eat with their neighbours for a simple and fun way of reconnecting with those that live near them.‌
