Eats, treats and beats at St. Helier street party

Saturday 13 July 2019


Arts and crafts, a food village and two stages of live music and entertainment will today fill town as the annual Fête de St Hélier street party enters its seventh year.

La Fête is part of a week of events surrounding St Helier Day, which includes the annual journey to Elizabeth Castle on Sunday 14 July.

The Parish has focused on community spirit, working with many local traders, and performers to deliver a weekend full of activities to satisfy all ages.

A band from Normandy in France, Tchikifonk, will open the event in a parade through the Town Centre at midday today.

There will be wide variety of live music acts and entertainment, as well as copious amounts of local art and craft talent on display at Parade Gardens and on Broad Street.

Filling islanders ears over the weekend will be music by DJ Stefunk, stories told by Allan Gardner, while circus acts, the Helier Morris Men, the Total Mayhem Breakdance Crew, Jersey Elvis, Sonia Nobrega, Kevin Pallot, Terry Arthur and many more will offer a feast for the eyes.

Due to popular demand, the French Market will also return to Broad Street for a second year of craft, cheese, cider and food.

Organisers hope that the event will offer an enjoyable way to soak up the summer atmosphere to both locals and visitors.
