To celebrate French National Day, our French community and visitors we are arranging a small event on Saturday 14th July. The concept is to involve all businesses and restaurants in creating a French atmosphere in Kenmare for the day.
We intend to create a French Quarter inKenmare involving French flags, bunting etc. We are asking all businesses especially shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels to embrace this concept and decorate their premises accordingly.
As we know food is at the centre of the French culture and we would like to reflect this in our town on the day. We would like if your restaurants and/or food outlets could include a typical French dish on your menu on the given day.
We are hoping to have a marquee from mid-day until around 4.30pm where all local food producers and chefs will provide amuse-bouche/canapés, food samples to be paired with French wine to be enjoyed at large communal tables, creating a street party atmosphere.
Other activities on the day will include Pétanque (Boule’s game), children’s entertainment and activities. French music and costumes, mimes etc will feature on the day.
We believe that this event will draw wonderful interest from the French/Irish community in Ireland and overseas and we intend to market it accordingly.
We hope that you agree that this event, which is not a huge undertaking, will further enhance the visitor’s experience in Kenmare.
Your commitment and help will make this happen. Please contact Helen at KMEG (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your suggestions and offers of participation. It is still early days and we’re just starting out on this venture so nothing is cast in stone!
