The Our Town Belfast Dinner on the Bridge is a highly anticipated annual event that takes place on the Armistice Footbridge in downtown Belfast. The dinner includes a cocktail hour and multi-course menu offered to guests in a magical setting above Belfast Bay. The dinner is carefully crafted and served by our friends at Trillium Caterers, located here in Belfast. Proceeds from Dinner on the Bridge help Our Town Belfast continue its work to support Belfast’s historic downtown.
