Castleconnell Village is set to become one giant picnic on Sunday 5th May and are inviting all locals to come out on the street to celebrate unity and togetherness.
The Castleconnell Street Feastival is in conjunction with the new national community weekend, The Big Hello’s Street Feast, and will be held on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend, but organisers, LOVE Castleconnell, promise it will be much more than just a celebration of food!
“Castleconnell has experienced huge growth in recent years”, explains Nicky McNamara from LOVE Castleconnell, “and we thought what better way to celebrate the community than run a Street Feast, or a Feastival if you like, taking a moment to break bread together - this is a perfect way for people to meet and get to know each other. There will be something for all the family!”
Kicking off at 12 noon there will be food available by local artisan vendors, there promises to be music, competitions, face painting, special announcements and lots of surprises.
Organisers are encouraging everyone to bring a dish, a picnic, a chair, a musical instrument, or whatever they wish to enjoy the day!
The event kicks off at 12 noon on Sunday 5th of May, there will be competitions and raffles with prizes that include Afternoon Tea from the Castle Oaks House Hotel and Estate, hampers and gift vouchers.
