IT'S one of the most popular events on Chinchilla's social calendar and this year One Long Table is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Last week, the committee members put their heads together for the first time this year to begin planning for the annual street-food event in September, which is hosted by Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry (CCCI).

One Long Table committee president Rohan Woodforth said this year's event promises to be Chinchilla's biggest street party yet.

"This year we hope to see about 5000 come out for the event,” he said.

"There will be more stalls and we hope to extend the length of the table further down the street. Everyone walks around and sits down wherever they want to and talk to everyone. It really brings the community together.”

CCCI event co-ordinator and committee secretary Gaye Smith said One Long Table was a celebration of multiculturalism.

"It brings the community together and recognises the residents of Chinchilla and the different nationalities that live in the community and it's a great drawcard for people outside of Chinchilla to see what we can do.”
