A family-style dinner under the stars at the historic Ferry Building -- it may sound like an only-in-San Francisco kind of event, and it is! Join chefs, winemakers, bartenders, and sustainable farmers for CUESA's 11th Annual Sunday Supper.

Sunday Supper is a sumptuous celebration of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market community and California’s rich agricultural bounty. Thirty of San Francisco's greatest chefs (like Kory Stewart of Americano, Anothony Strong of Locanda, Brooke Mosley of Outerlands... do we have your attention yet?) collaborate on the four-course meal which is served, family-style, on long communal tables upstairs in the Grand Hall of the Ferry Building.

The evening kicks off with a reception featuring an exclusive view of the star-studded kitchen, accompanied by sparkling wine, local oysters, artisan cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres. Evening emcee and Emmy award-winning host of CBS’s Eye on the Bay Liam Mayclem will introduce each whole-beast entrée and interview chefs at the tables about their dishes.

A live auction featuring one-of-a kind, culinary-themed items will complete the evening’s festivities. You could walk away with anything from a dinner in the dugout of AT&T Park to an eight-day tour of Mexico's culinary capitals (um, yes please!).

The memorable evening supports CUESA’s 20 years of nurturing small family farms, building a sustainable food community, and educating the next generation of eaters. This year’s gala focuses on CUESA’s newest educational initiative, Foodwise Kids, an innovative program that uses the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market as a classroom for teaching elementary students to love vegetables and fruits through comparative tastings, exploring the market, and a hands-on cooking lesson.

Sunday, October 20, 6 - 10 p.m. Tickets are $250 per person ($175 is tax deductible) and can be purchased here.
