‘Eat the Streets’ Returns to Dublin

Dublin City Council’s Eat the Streets Festival is back for its third year and will be hosted at Richmond Barracks in Inchicore Dublin 8 on Saturday 16th September from 12pm to 5pm.

The Festival continues to explore Dublin’s rich food history by asking people, young and old, to join in a journey to “Grow, Cook, Create and Discover”. The festival brings together chefs, food experts, growers and producers to cook, create and discover Dublin’s food history. Visitors 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. 

Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste said:

“Dublin City Council's Eat the Streets Festival brings together families, farmers, urban growers and neighbourhoods to celebrate Dublin’s food. We invite the public to 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.”

Chefs with a passion for Irish produce will demonstrate how to celebrate Dublin’s vegetable roads by cooking and sharing their tips on climate action in the kitchen and beyond in a series of “Cook Alongs”. Visitors can also explore their creative side through the art of plating, tie-dye and upcycling food packaging. 

A series of “After-Lunch Chats” will be hosted to share ideas and talk about how food can be a solution to climate change, and of course delicious food and fun entertainment for all.
