A world record attempt!

The Bay Harbor Foundation is hosting a farm-to-table Community Dinner, which will take place on Main Street in Bay Harbor on August 30th, 2018.

In 2009, the Foundation created a record with a World Record for the World’s Largest Parade of Electric Vehicles.  We are once again working to create a new record for the Longest Five Course Farm-to-Table Community Dinner.  Guests will enjoy a candlelit dinner on linen-covered tables decorated with sunflowers that will be placed on 300 feet of Main Street in the Village at Bay Harbor.

Guests will be served a delicious farm-to-table five-course dinner, plus a welcome tasting.  This meal will showcase meats and vegetable sources from local farms, and a chef introduction will accompany each course.  All of our Bay Harbor restaurants and chefs will be contributing to this event, along with many of our local wineries.

We welcome guests from throughout the Little Traverse Bay Region to join in this World Record attempt in support the immediate health and human service needs in our community, and at the same time have fun with this win/win event.

Help the Bay Harbor Foundation break a world record!
