The Long, Long, Long, Long Dinner Party is a bold concept for a fundraising event.
But downtown Gettysburg and its people deserve this. The event will support revitalization efforts in Gettysburg, notably the current project to revitalize the Baltimore Street Historic Pathway, the route President Abraham Lincoln traveled in 1863 to deliver his immortal Gettysburg Address.
On October 4th, from 5 to 8 p.m., The Long, Long, Long, Long Dinner Party table will stretch down the middle of a blocked-off Baltimore Street, all the way from Lincoln Square to South Street——a distance of four blocks. Guests can purchase their meals from a wide variety of food trucks and area restaurants; or they can bring their own potluck dinners from home. Also, a spirits tent will be set up on Lincoln Square. This is an open-air fundraising party, with entertainment and surprises, the whole town can enjoy with their families, friends, and neighbors.
Tickets are $15 per person (which includes the Eventbrite processing fee) and they reserve a seat at the dinner party. Each table has 8 seats.
If tickets still remain, they can be purchased at the event for $20 per person.
We need your help to make it happen.
To keep individual ticket prices affordable at $15 and to reach our fundraising goal, we need your help to subsidize necessary extras that will make this event safe and successful.
Attending the Event
Your ticket buys you a seat at the table, but you are responsible for your own food. You can choose to pack a meal from home, order from a local restaurant, or visit one of the food trucks on site.
We do not have an open container allowance within the event area. We do, however, have a Special Occasion Permit with the PLCB that allows MSG to sell alcohol within a designated area of the event. This designated area is located on Lincoln Square and beer and wine will be sold to those 21 years and over.
It will be a busy evening in Gettysburg. The high school is having their homecoming football game right off of Baltimore Street and will be using the school parking lots on Lefever Street. Please DO NOT park at either the Gettysburg Middle School or Lincoln Elementary School parking lots. These spaces are reserved for those attending the football game.
We have arranged to use the Harrisburg Area Community College parking lot at 731 Old Harrisburg Road in Gettysburg. Free parking and a free shuttle to the event will be provided.
The shuttle will operate between the following hours:
To the event: 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Returns to lot: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Finding A Seat
If you purchased a table (8 tickets or more), you will have a reserved table(s) at the event. A tent sign with “reserved” and with the purchaser’s name will be on the table. If you need help to locate your table, find an event volunteer.
If you purchased only a few tickets (less than 8), you will need to find a table that is not reserved. A tent sign with “open” will be on the table. If you need help to locate an open table, find an event volunteer.
Please bring your tickets to the event - you can simply show the tickets on your mobile device or you can print them out and bring them along!
