Big Night at the Green Barn

Ten years ago, a community came together.

Inspired by The Stop’s mission to connect people around good food and thriving gardens, they created Big Night at the Green Barn—a vibrant celebration of the rich history of growing food in Toronto.

This vital fundraiser has since grown into a beloved local tradition. Every June, guests gather to enjoy a magnificent family-style meal inspired by classic Italian home cooking and prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs. Since the first Big Night in 2009, over 3,500 attendees have raised $1,654,710 for The Stop’s community programs.

Join us in 2019 as we raise a glass to our tenth anniversary, and to the future of Big Night!
