The buoys get a Halloween treat

Do you know Buoy’s Park aka Cathedral Gardens in Belfast?

Whether you do or you don’t this Halloween get ready to have your eyes opened as Belfast based company Project SFB (Street Food Belfast) is bringing a unique pop up festival to the site, located between University of Ulster and St Anne’s Cathedral, from Friday 31st Oct – Sunday 2nd November.

The event plans to showcase how under used places and spaces can be a source of creating new ways of socialising in the City of Belfast and encourage people to visit, explore and rethink the use of the City’s places and spaces.

This is the second pop up festival to be managed by Project SFB and the first with support from Belfast City Council. Their first event, in August this year, saw the disused Assembly Buildings in Waring Street, Belfast, transformed into a pop up festival for two evenings.

The company hope that their Halloween event will be the start of a regular series of pop up festivals which will see under used places and spaces across the City being brought to life.

The pop up festival at Buoy’s Park will include a two storey marquee supplied by local company Maverick Marquees. It will also feature shabby chic and Halloween themed decor with chill out sofas and even the ‘buoys’ will get in on the act!

Local food vendors will include Tricycle Trading, traditional tricycle vending with contemporary food, and Street Dogs, a Gourmet Hotdog Company – to name but a few.

Lavery’s, Belfast’s oldest family owned bar, will provide traditional and craft beers, entertainment by local DJS and especially for the children a fun day on Sunday 2nd November featuring bouncy castles.

Project SFB at Buoy’s Park, Belfast opens Friday 31st October and will run until Sunday 2nd November. Opening times are 12pm – 1am and 12 – 6pm on Sunday. Admission is free before 7pm, Friday and Saturday a £5 admission fee will be applied.
