4th Annual Dinner on the Bridge
Greentopia’s signature event.

On Thursday, July 12, 2018, join us for Rochester’s utterly unique dining experience… Dinner on the Bridge!

Now in its 4th year, Greentopia’s signature event, Dinner on the Bridge, will be Thursday, July 12, 2018 (rain date: Tuesday, July 17th).

Come join us as 250 friends and supporters and a chef from one of Rochester’s premier restaurants will converge on the Pont-de-Rennes bridge in Rochester’s High Falls to participate in this truly unique event. Dinner on the Bridge has earned a reputation as one of Rochester’s premier events: an evening of tantalizing food and community on a summer night amid the sights and sounds of the incomparable High Falls!

Dinner on the Bridge is an exclusive celebration of food, wine, and friends. Our attendees dine ON the Pont de Rennes Bridge – 100 above the waters of the Genesee River – with a commanding view of the High Falls and Gorge.

This open-air feast will once again reconnect guests to High Falls and the Genesee River Gorge. Our dinner will reflect the bounty of our rich agricultural region.

cub_room_300pxThis year, we’re very excited to announce that Greg Johnson and his crew from the very popular THE CUB ROOM restaurant will be preparing delectable hors-d’oeuvres (for the pre-party) as well as ALL DINNER ITEMS for the actual Dinner on the Bridge! Having one great restaurant prepare everything will vastly improve the logistics and allow for greater streamlining of the whole evening, allowing you to spend more time at our incredible After Party.

We’ll also feature unique entertainment, auctions and other opportunities to support Greentopia, and pre and post–receptions in Granite Mills Park, steps from where you’ll pick up your car from the valet at the end of the evening.
