Farm to City Street Dinner

No need to cook dinner for the family on Sunday. York’s Farm to City Street Dinner will fill you up with a delicious locally sourced fall meal served with local beer, cider and wine. But the coolest part is the dinner will be served family-style with about 200 other members of the community in the center of one of York’s busiest streets – North Beaver Street.

It’s a great way to meet your neighbors and celebrate the fall season as a community. A silent auction and live music will also be provided.

The dinner starts at 2:30 p.m. Click here for tickets and more info.
