ABOUT

In October 2016, hundreds of Daytonians came together at a dinner table the length of the Third Street bridge. It was packed with strangers who wanted to break bread with their neighbors and meet someone new. Longest Table meals challenge participants to re-think their assumptions about other parts of town and the people who live there. 

Throughout 2017 and 2018, the Longest Table team worked with neighborhoods and community centers to keep the conversation going including a second giant table stretching across the Third Street Bridge. More than 600 people were part of the table. In 2019, the Longest Table will be a giant picnic stretching across the lawn at Levitt Pavilion!

Thank you to the City of Dayton Neighborhood Mini Grant Program for making this event possible!
