Get Out and Mix at MEASC Festival of Culture and Faiths

Get Out and Mix at MEASC Festival of Culture and Faiths

The MEASC annual Festival of Culture and Faiths takes place this Sunday, September 16, in Herbert Park, Dublin, from 12pm to 5pm. Hosted by Dublin City Interfaith Forum with Dublin City Council, MEASC draws on and celebrates the diversity of contemporary Irish society.

This free family day out, celebrates the diversity of Dublin’s communities, offering a bridge between our various cultures and faiths in a fun day full of music, food, song, dance and culture.

MEASC, which means ‘mix’ in Irish, is now in its second year. The one–day festival aims to showcase the beauty and richness of faith and culture from the city’s diverse faith communities.

Apart from bringing faith traditions together, it is most importantly lots of fun and a good family day out, with games and workshops for children, and for adults too.

This year, the festival will host Syrian refugee families from different accommodation centres and offer children and adults alike an opportunity to reconnect with familiar culture, arts and foods, from home and abroad.

There will be a craft bazaar, food market, performances and other cultural activities on the day.
