The 3rd Annual Really, Really, Long Table Dinner in Calgary returns September 14th

August 27, 2015
by City Palate 
Building on the success of the previous two years, City Palate presents the return of the award-winning Really, Really Long Table Dinner on Monday, September 14th 2015.
There is no better way to discover the essence of a city than through exploratory eating. As such, we encourage out-of-town foodies and local epicureans to experience Calgary and its dynamic culinary offerings.
Blink, Catch & The Oyster Bar, Charcut Roast House, Divino, Trib SteakhouseWine-Ohs, Home Tasting Room and The Bank & Baron will each prepare a dish for this extraordinary dinner, along with perfect wine pairings by The Cellar. A long stretch of Stephen Avenue Walk will be our venue, and the city sunset will be our backdrop.
Once again, City Palate is proud to be partnering with Calgary Downtown Association, Tourism Calgary, Alberta Culinary Tourism Alliance and the merchants of Stephen Avenue Walk for this event.
Culture tourism is a key growth industry in Alberta. With a landscape as diverse as ours, we are able to partner with and promote a variety of local producers, chefs, restaurants, and small businesses under the banner of this flagship event.
There is a lot of excitement around our city and its ever-expanding food scene, and City Palate is proud to generate an increased sense of place through culinary tourism in Calgary.
Recipient of Downtown Calgary’s 2013 Vitality Award for community integration and vibrancy, the Really, Really Long Table Dinner is unique. With many Albertans looking to explore their own backyard, this thoughtfully curated evening invites everybody to become tourists in their town!
Food and wine are an enormous part of our community and, together with our industry collaborators, we are able to feature our region’s cuisine and create an exceptional experience. We invite you to gather your friends and make some new ones at this distinctive event that celebrates the culinary side of Calgary.
