The event venue will accommodate up to 300 people for weddings, parties, fundraisers, and other events. It will offer training opportunities for students in all aspects of culinary arts, event management, and hospitality. We will create an event space that offers style and comfort for guests, while also supporting a robust training program for students.


  • Provide job training for students in all aspects of culinary arts

  • Build a workforce to support local culinary & hospitality businesses

  • Provide the community with much-needed large venue space

  • Employ adults with special needs

  • Create a revenue stream that helps sustain the Chesapeake Food Connection project

  • Incorporate locally sourced ingredients and finished goods to support local farmers and small businesses


We've done our best to estimate our project timeline. However, reality doesn't always cooperate with even the best-laid plans! The timeline below is our best current estimate of when the event venue will be opened. The venue will provide training opportunities for students on all aspects of the culinary arts and hospitality, so it is one of our top priorities.
