UPDATE Due to inclement weather, this event is postponed until April 14. More information is at wusflongesttable.org.
Prepare to be shoulder-to-shoulder with other philanthropist foodies during this epicurean experience in the middle of Bayshore Drive, complete with a scenic view of Tampa Bay. The roughly 1,000 foot-long table will stretch from Vinoy Hotel to the Museum of Fine Arts.
There will be a wide variety of restaurants to choose from at the upcoming fundraiser, and once a specific eatery is chosen, the chef themselves will greet you and explain the gourmet four-course meal you chose. Accompanying dinner will be various types of alcoholic beverages to choose from, which are included in the price of a dinner ticket.
The public can start buying tickets on March 7, but WUSF members can start snagging their World’s Longest Table tickets on Feb. 28. Tickets for WUSF's Longest Table 2022 range from $185-$285. This exclusive waterfront dinner has a history of selling out, so keep an eye out for those ticket links on the World’s Longest Table website.
Although there is no official list of restaurants that will provide the eats for April’s fundraiser, some eateries that were planned for 2020’s obviously-canceled installment include 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House, Café L’Europe, Shiso Crispy, The Library, Twisted South and Urban Comfort—but only time will tell if the same restaurants will be featured at 2022’s fundraiser.
And if you’re looking to donate some stacks, you can become an official sponsor of this fundraising event. There are three tiers of sponsorships ranging from $1,500-$5,000 that get you multiple dinner tickets, preferential restaurant selection and reserved seating.
Suggested attire is “evening casual,” so get your best pair of church pants ready for the return of this exclusive waterfront fundraiser.
