Harvest Fair offers food and fun – all in a fantastic building

RICHMOND Barracks will host a Harvest Fair on September 24 and 25 (11am to 5pm).

Admission to the Inchicore event is free. Stalls will offer expertly crafted and unique products made by local businesses, artists and craftspeople, and locally made food from the harvest.

Visitors will have a chance to take part in one of the harvest-themed drop-in creative workshops and find out what’s coming up in the Culture Connects programme.

Iseult Byrne, CEO of Dublin City Council Culture Company, said: “Richmond Barracks is a cornerstone of the community in Inchicore. The Harvest Fair is the perfect reason to visit this fantastic building, take part in some drop-in workshops, buy something for the home or a gift, and learn about all the things you can do at Richmond Barracks when you return to see us again.

“We’re delighted to welcome social enterprises, small businesses and traders from the local areas around Dublin 8, 10, 12 and 24 and in some cases introduce them to new customers or participants. There will be a warm welcome for everyone.”

Local vendors will include Knobs n Bobs, two Clondalkin-based sisters Rachel and Kim who make vintage home decor items.

There will be a range of interactive workshops and tours, on topics such as harvesting, food, bio-diversity and fitness.

Food and drink offerings include two local social enterprises – The Green Kitchen with WALK from Walkinstown, and Tallaght enterprise The FoodCloud Kitchen, Ireland’s first zero-waste food truck.

The Harvest Fair at Richmond Barracks is the second in a series of fairs during 2022/23 organised by Dublin City Council Culture  Company (which runs Richmond Barracks) and Dublin South City Partnership with Kilmainham Inchicore Network.
