The Longest Table 2021
August 19, 2021
The Longest Table is Haverhill’s most exciting outdoor inclusive dining experience. Due to safety guidelines, a group of friends can purchase a table of six and enjoy favorite local restaurants this summer for fun, food, and entertainment under the summer sky.
The Longest Table supports L’Arche Boston North, a local nonprofit envisioning and inspiring a world that welcomes difference and celebrates the gifts of all people.
A table includes six guests, appetizers, a delicious entree from a local eatery, and an official event swag bag. 20% of ticket sales benefit participating local restaurants.
Tables will go on sale on Monday, June 28th!
Keep up to date on participating restaurants and event info by following our event on Facebook!
Table of six: $600.
Thank you to our centerpiece sponsor for keeping us fresh and green!
The Longest Table was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but check out these images of our last event in 2019!
