You are invited to the table!
We provide the dinner; you provide the conversation.

Save the date for the second annual Longest Table. Share a meal and conversation with someone you don’t know*, exchange stories about life in Howard County, and discover both common ground and new ideas. The dialogue starts when you come to the table.

The Longest Table will be held outdoors on the campus of Howard Community College in Lots B and C, off the right spoke of the traffic circle at the main entrance on Little Patuxent Parkway. In the event of rain, the event will be moved inside.

T-shirts available for pre-purchase when purchasing tickets.

TABLE HOSTS NEEDED. Interested in being a Table Host? We will provide conversation starters and an orientation. The goal is to provide each table with a Table Host who will keep guests actively engaged in conversation throughout the evening. Table Hosts must purchase a ticket to the event (click here to do so) and receive a free T-shirt.
