Field to Table

Mark your calendars for the spectacular end-of-summer celebration that is Field to Table. The 15th annual Field to Table will take place on Friday, August 25, 2023. Thoughtfully planned by the Franklin Park Conservatory Women’s Board, this event raises funds to support the Conservatory’s community outreach, education and access programs. A perennial sell-out, this celebration of the late-summer harvest brings together 700 corporate and community leaders, Women’s Board members and their guests to enjoy a cocktail party and multi-course dinner, featuring locally grown and produced foods, in support of the Conservatory’s community impact.
