OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The 2018 Green Connections’ Prairie Dinner Gone Urban and Concert is scheduled for Saturday, September 15. Normally held each autumn on the prairie at Turtle Rock Farm near Billings, this year’s dinner, celebrating the event’s 10th anniversary, will take place at DC on Film Row, 609 W. Sheridan, in Oklahoma City.

The traditional multi-course local foods dinner will be catered once again by chefs Kamala Gamble and Barbara Mock from Oklahoma City’s Kam’s Kookery at Guilford Gardens. Wine will be provided from the Woods & Waters Winery vineyard located near Anadarko.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with conversation, music, appetizers, and wine. Dinner will follow at 7 p.m. outdoors in the Dunlap Codding courtyard, with a full concert beginning at 8 p.m. Seating is limited.

Performing this year’s après dinner concert will be Mary Reynolds and Louise Goldberg, also known as Miss Brown to You.

“We are excited to offer the ‘Prairie Dinner’ in an urban setting this year,” said Pat Hoerth Batchelder, program leader and resident of the CommonWealth Urban Farms community in Oklahoma City and co-owner of Turtle Rock Farm. “It’s always been such a magical evening and we’re expecting it to be so again.

“All the ingredients will be present: scrumptious local food and wine, stirring and soulful live music, good company and the chance to be aware of the beauty of evening in an urban setting.”
