Project Team: The Longest Table Dayton

The Longest Table Dayton was a project selected & launched as part of the 2016 UpDayton Summit. It will be continuing into 2017 thanks to enormous community support.

On Saturday, October 15th, 2016 hundreds of Daytonians gathered for a community meal and dialogue on the Third Street Bridge - Dayton's Peace Bridge. The goal of the event was to connect Daytonians from every corner of the city and region, to meet people we never would have met otherwise. People were randomly assigned to a table and spent the afternoon learning about each other and the neighborhoods we love. Learn more at
