The brilliant Stalybridge Street Fest is back for another year with a whopping eight servings of the food and family fun event set to bring a menu of tasty treats from April to November for 2024.

The events will once again be fully funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund for Communities and Place, which was awarded to Tameside Council to improve public realm, greenspaces and support cultural events across the borough.

Running since 2021 - with a tried and tested formula of family fun, live music and tasty food and drink – Street Fest has really helped bring out the local community and generate footfall and civic pride for thetown. The early evening event will take place from 5-9pm on the second Friday of the month, with the November date to be confirmed but it will move to support the town’s Christmas events.

This month (June), revellers will be joined by The Thai Food Van, Giuseppe’s Pizza Truck, The Secret Garden Drinks and many more local traders, as well as “A Sweep of Swallows”, which are three lightweight kite puppets which will be swooping around the festival.

Originally designed for the Beijing Puppet Festival, the swallows have been created by A Bird in the Hand Theatre, a puppet and mask theatre company from nearby West Yorkshire. The collective makes beautiful, quirky, gentle shows, installations and walkabouts for outdoor and theatre audiences, aimed at family audiences. There'll also be a DJ on hand to keep the vibes high and feet tapping.

The food line up will include food highlights and flavours from around the world from Spanish, Chinese, Belgian, Greek thai and Caribbean Street Food like Gourmet Burgers, Halloumi and Burritos. You name and we have it!
