Foodies will not want to miss this!
Mayo Street Food Festival will take place in September.
To launch this, there will be a series of fun events taking place this weekend.
The fundraising food series in Castlebar will include several events such as a foraging walk and picnic on the Greenway with Connacht Chef of the Year Barry Ralph.
On Sunday, June 30, you can learn to forage with the House of Plates head chef. It will involve a one-and-a-half mile walk through the countryside to discover its best foodie bits. You’ll receive a foraging booklet with recipes and the tour will end with a foraging-themed picnic.
The Brewery Cup is also stepping up to the plate to host a special four-course evening dinner, with all proceeds going towards the September food festival.
Next up is an amuse-bouche! Adding some light relief to the food series is a night of comedy bingo in aid of the festival, hosted by comedians Steve Bennett and Steven Sharpe, upstairs at Bridge Street on Friday, July 12 at 8.30pm. Tickets are €7.
More events are yet to be announced as part of the food series calendar – watch this space and see Mayo Street Food Festival’s Facebook page or website for more details.
Sounds like great craic altogether!
