Shandon Street Festival

Shandon Street Festival 2017

In Events by Mark O'Brien

There will be fun for all the family at the 11th annual Shandon Street Festival. This free family fun day will take place around Church Street, in the shadow of the Shandon Bells in Cork on 24th June from 1-6pm and there really is something for everyone to enjoy at this one day extravaganza.

There will be street entertainment, food and craft stalls, dancers, a chance to learn some circus skills and the famous under-10’s 5-a-side soccer tournament that takes place in St. Anne’s Park.

There will also be a wide range of food stalls serving everything from paella to falafels, crepes and ice-cream to homemade pies and cakes. While you’re tucking into this fine food you can enjoy a great range of diverse music from the likes of the Butter Exchange Band, The Laughing Shamrock’s Band and the Muddy Lee & Shandon Shawlies. There will also be a ceili about 3pm in the gardens of the Craft Centre.

That’s so much fun to pack into one day and all visitors are encouraged to further take part in the day by taking photos and posting them to the Shandon Street Facebook 2017 page and to their Twitter page @shandonfest, making sure that you will have lasting memories of the wonderful time you’re sure to have at the Shandon Street Festival.
