Street Feast 2017

Dear Denis and the Muintir na Tire team,

We invite you to join us on Sunday 11th June 2017 for the 8th annual Street Feast!
Street Feast is the national day of street parties celebrating community through the simple act of sharing a meal with neighbours. We are calling on people nationwide to come together at 12.00 noon to share food and conversation with neighbours as a simple and fun way of reconnecting and building social solidarity and resilience. Last year we saw 74 Street Feasts take place in County Cork, 1,215 took place all across Ireland with 120,000 people involved. We want 2017 to be the biggest, most inclusive and best one yet.
We provide free DIY Packs and offer on-going support for those who register online at, everything you need to kick start your feast! Registrations open next week.
We would like to ensure that Muintir na Tire in County Cork are aware of the initiative and would very much appreciate it if you would forward the below email and the attached poster to your network. I have attached a poster to this email. 
If you have any questions, or if there is anything further I can provide, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks,

Mel Drew

Street Feast 2016

Join us for Street Feast!

Feast with your neighbours on Sunday 11th June

We're inviting you to take part in and spread the word about this year's Street Feast, the national day of street parties and community celebrations. It's being hosted by neighbours and community groups all over Ireland this 11th June. It's a perfect excuse to share good food, meet your neighbours and have a bit of craic.

We're inviting you to encourage your members to get involved.

Free Packs

Once again we’re posting out free party packs to Street Feast hosts. Each helpful pack contains a handy guide to help make your feast a success, as well as posters, invitations, balloons and bunting to get the party started! To get your pack you need to register your feast on our website and make sure to request a pack when registering.

It's easy!

It's a simple idea. Street Feasts can be held anywhere; on the pavement, in a laneway or a local park. They can be any size, from 10 to 100 people. Everyone is invited to bring something to contribute, be it a tasty dish, some chairs or a musical instrument.

Check out what happened last year when 120,000 neighbours took part!

Finally, please spread the word

This is a people-powered initiative - we need your help to spread the word about Street Feast. Please forward this email to your friends, neighbours and network and inspire them to take part.
