Eat The Streets! Festival Coming To Dublin

Dublin City Council has announced the return of its Eat the Streets! Festival for a third year.

The festival will be hosted at Richmond Barracks on Saturday, September 16, in Inchicore Dublin 8.

The Eat the Streets! Festival aims to explore Dublin’s rich food history and brings together chefs, food experts, growers, and producers to cook, create and discover Dublin's food culture.

Cook Alongs

Chefs with a passion for Irish produce will celebrate Dublin’s vegetable roads by cooking with visitors, and sharing their tips on climate action in the kitchen and beyond in a series of cook alongs.

Guests can also explore their creative side through the art of plating, tie-dye, and upcycling food packaging.


'Food Oasis'

The festival will also include a series of after-lunch chats which will be hosted to share ideas on how food can be a solution to climate change.

Furthermore, there will be free workshops for children where they can learn how to chop like a chef and prepare a simple stir-fry, how to mill grain into flour, or how to turn an urban garden into a 'food oasis.'

'Celebrate Dublin’s Food'

"Dublin City Council's The Eat the Streets! Festival brings together families, farmers, urban growers and neighbourhoods to celebrate Dublin’s food!," said Lord Mayor of Dublin, Daithí de Róiste.

"Come to the Richmond Barracks on Saturday 16th September to help us plant seeds for a tastier future because food and what we eat define so much about us as people, our culture, and our history."
