The Last Picnic

The Last Picnic was a free family friendly community event organised by Dublin City Council to mark the end of Summer 2017. The event took place on Sunday 1st October 2017 in the beautiful setting of Mountjoy Square Park.

The programme included a variety of outdoor activities and entertainment including live music, have a go sports sessions, children’s entertainers, food and beverage offerings, folklore information tent and more. 

Approx. 1,500 people attended, participated and enjoyed this opportunity to spend quality time with their children, meet their neighbours and relax with friends on a Sunday afternoon in their local public park.

This pilot event, funded under the North East Inner City initiative was considered to be a big success and it has potential for development as an annual event for the local area.
