Progressive Dinner hosts needed – sign up now!
Dec 9 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Hosts sought for annual Progressive Dinner

One of the long-standing highlights of the holiday season is the Bethlehem Progressive Dinner. Diners visit four homes during this evening of dining fun and conversation- the perfect combination of large and small groups. This year the Progressive Dinner is scheduled for December 9.
Registration of hosts is now open and will continue through October. We need:
  • 6 more  hosts for soup and salad
  • 6 more hosts for the entrée
  • 2 more hosts for dessert

Soup/Salad and entrée hosts are given specific recipes to make for their course. Meat and wine is provided for the entrée hosts. Participants are asked to provide either an appetizer or dessert to one of the hosting homes to supplement what the host has provided.

 Once hosts are in place, we will start registering others who wish to participate. The cost for each participant is $15.
 If you’ve never participated before, put this event on your calendar. It’s a wonderful way to connect with a lot of people in one night!
