Over 2,500 people casually dropped by the Street Feast last year which was the first year Galway’s award-winning restaurants in the Westend brought samples of their food to the streets of the City.
And this year’s festival, which started yesterday, will culminate on Bank Holiday Monday, when the Street Feast will be joined by live music and face painting – provided the weather doesn’t ruin the show!
The ERG Food Truck has been on Ravens Terrace since yesterday showcasing samples of food from well-known local business, and it has been attracting lots of interest from passers by and food-lovers.
The Street Feast allows you to sample a taste of each business including Kai Restaurant, Dela Restaurant, John Keoghs The Lockkeeper, An Tobar Nua, Rouge Restaurant, Gourmet Tartm Creole BBQ & Grill, Hooked on Henry Street, Crust Bucket, Tartare Cafe + Wine Bar, Massimo Bar, Monroes and retailers including Avo Nice Day, McGuire’s Daybreak, Bell Book and Candle, Farraghers, Just Art It and Ernies of course.
Business, producers and local suppliers will be showcased through the ERG Food Truck at Galway Westend each day and people will get a chance to meet the producers and the chefs of Westend eateries and also sample some of their most well-known dishes.
Galway’s Westend have teamed up with Walsh Waste to make this a biodegradable and compostable festival, using eco packaging and take away materials.
Ravens Terrace will be closed off to traffic completely on June 4th and there will be live music and face painting. This is a family friendly day in the Westend that aims to encourage people to cross the bridge and enjoy all that is going on in this much-loved area of Galway.
“Each business will be offering a flavour of what they do. The area will be set up as a picnic area and we are inviting Galway to the Westend to enjoy all of our amazing food. Each business will have a stall set up selling food and refreshments, there will be live blue grass music and face painting will be happening for all the children,” explained Mags Bohan of Dela Restaurant and the Westend Traders association.
Being in Galway, this all comes with a weather warning!!!
The event is weather dependent – as long as its dry, it’s going ahead!
