Chamber Brings Diverse Hearts to the Longest Table

After taking two years off, Jacksonville’s Longest Table was back recently with a huge turnout on a Wednesday night in Downtown Jacksonville.
The 5th annual Longest Table brought together about 700 people at a table that stretched more than 600 feet down Independent Drive from the Main Street Bridge to Newnan Street.
Now in its fifth year (but the first since 2019), the open-air dinner was created to get people talking and to connect diverse groups from across Jacksonville. Attendees were seated in eight different zones and encouraged to sit with people they’d never met.  Through informal conversation during dinner, attendees talked about they felt about Jacksonville, what they love most about our city and what they would change, among other topics.
“It’s great to have the Longest Table back and to see so many people from all across our city come together without an agenda, just to share a meal together and get to know each other,” JAX Chamber Chair Ray Driver said.
Attendees signed up for tickets to this year’s event through Eventbrite and all of the seats were reserved within 48 hours.
