Billings Forge Community Works invites you to our completely reimagined 9th Annual Farm to Table Dinner.

This year, our signature event will include food and drink booths that showcase our initiatives and turn the staid gala design on its head. It’ll be an evening filled with Greater Hartford foodies & executives, spectacular food & wine, and will be one of the year’s best opportunities to give back locally. Come ready to celebrate local food and our city, and rejoice in our impact together.
