Event description

Description

The Longest Table welcomes residents to sit down for a free dinner in a welcoming environment with people they may not know, to foster stronger connections, exchange stories, and share ideas about their community. The event will feature an uninterrupted table spanning up to 1,250 feet along University Avenue, beginning at the southwest corner of University Park and stretching several blocks east on the road.

This year, the Longest Table will also seek to gather input regarding the future of the University Avenue Corridor, stretching from Columbia Road to North 3rd Street. Information will contribute to the master planning study being conducted by JLG Architects at the request of the Community Foundation and Knight Foundation.
