7th Annual BV Strong Community Dinner

About #BVStrong


The 7th Annual BV Strong Community Dinner will be Monday, September 21, 2020 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Join us with your friends and neighbors at dinner down the middle of Main Street, with the majestic Collegiate Peaks as our backdrop.

We are a community that’s diverse in opinions and ideas; yet on this night, we focus on all we have in common as we eat together at one table. We embrace the people we love and celebrate those we’ve lost, cheer our accomplishments, and anticipate the return to “just us” as the summer season winds down.

All are welcome, and there’s a seat for everyone at our table. Our beautiful views are surpassed only by the beautiful people who call BV home!


7th Annual BV Strong Community Dinner, 9/21/2020









“Just dinner.”


The simple mission of the BV Strong Community Dinner Planning Team is, “Just dinner!” We strive to create a locally-funded and locally-organized annual activity where the residents of Buena Vista come together in a nonpolitical, noncommercial, non-promotional event to share food and friendship as we celebrate and nurture a sense of community.



The dinner is free to attend and is funded entirely by donations.

Your gift will be used for expenses such as table and chair rentals, sanitation, centerpieces, table signage, and other set-up costs.
