JAX Chamber to Host 3rd Annual ‘Jacksonville’s Longest Table’ Community Dinner

October 29th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

JAX Chamber will host the 3rd annual Jacksonville’s Longest Table community dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 14 in Downtown Jacksonville. Hundreds of tickets for the free event will be made available on Oct. 30.

The Longest Table is a shared meal at one table that stretches hundreds of feet along Independent Drive to foster conversation and build relationships across economic, racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds. The 2017 dinner drew nearly 400 people from across Jacksonville for the open-air meal in downtown.

Attendees will be seated at the table by color-coded nametags, which will correspond with their ZIP codes. This ensures diners are sharing the meal with a cross-section of Jacksonville residents to create connections that span neighborhoods across the city.

Dozens of dignitaries, from elected officials to business and religious leaders, will attend the dinner to introduce residents to people from neighborhoods across town and provide a setting to have meaningful conversations.

The Longest Table will showcase a wealth of entertainment and culturally diverse food from Jacksonville’s own culinary community. Area businesses are contributing food for the community dinner.

The event is free to attend. Tickets to the Longest Table will be made available online at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at bit.ly/jaxlongesttable2018.
