This fall, amidst a crisp autumn backdrop at Peabody Avenue and South Belvedere Boulevard, Edible Memphis and the Central Gardens Historic District will partner to host Dinner in the Gardens: an extravagant neighborhood dinner experience that allows us an opportunity to bring people together and invite them to engage with the Central Gardens Historic District in an unprecedented way.

This seven course, farm-to-table style dinner will bring together guests from all walks of life, with the goal of fostering connections and conversations that will propel our city into its third century. 











Edible Memphis, in partnership with the Central Gardens Association, will host an annual neighborhood dinner.  


This gathering is an opportunity to want to launch conversations and create social encounters that foster the influence of Central Gardens to bring Memphians together. This event allows us the opportunity to become a model for similar community dinners around the city. It also allows us to give back; portions of proceeds will go to our surrounding communities. Engaging local municipal, business, and social leaders at one table raises Memphis up in unity, building bridges between community leaders and residents. 


On October 19th, we will host an inaugural 1,000+ person farm-to-table dinner right in our backyard — Central Gardens. This will drive a natural focus on the greater community at the front porch of CGA's rich history. This unique engagement positions the District as a City leader dedicated to a vibrant Memphis.
