Become involved

Dine By Design East is a collection of champions for the arts who love great food and choose to support and encourage local creativity. We are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of roles for this fabulous event happening October 1 to 4, 2015. All proceeds go towards the Amber Harkins Memorial Scholarship at NSCAD University. Key roles include wine servers, live-auction spotters, onsite ticket sales and heavy lifters: anyone with some free time and desire to help make Dine By Design East 2015 a success! If you are interested in volunteering, please email Eileen at at Eileen[AT]

Our sponsors are some of our biggest fans and partner with us to showcase the elegance and vibrant food, art and design culture of the East Coast.  We offer a variety of levels to accommodate your goals when aligning yourself to this growing community.

Dine By Design East is purely volunteer driven by big-hearted folks just like you who are passionate about supporting our creative heritage and putting a  spotlight on the amazing talent found right here in our community.
