Join us for a four-course meal outside in downtown Carlisle!

On Friday, October 18, 2019, come join Destination Carlisle for our first-ever Farm-to-Table for Charity fundraising event that will kick off our Halloweekend event. Chef Duane Miller, Executive Chef at Cafe Bruges, and Maria Ntzanis, owner/chef of Grazery, will be preparing a seasonally appropriate, four-course dinner, using fresh ingredients provided by local farms, that will delight any foodie. Our dinner will be hosted outside under the stars in Cumberland County Historical Society's Pocket Park complete with string lights and candles and will be served by downtown small business owners. After our dinner concludes, TimeWalker Tours will be taking our guests who choose the ghost tour tickets will be taken on a ghost tour of downtown Carlisle.

This unique experience will benefit The Salvation Army of Carlisle's Stuart House Project and Destination Carlisle's ongoing work to improve the downtown business district.   In the event of inclement weather, our dinner will be moved inside to Todd Hall at the historical society.  Tickets include four courses, wine, beer, hard cider, and an optional ghost tour. Cancellations or changes must be made prior to October 8, 2019, to be eligible for a refund, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
