Join us in Celebrating Columbia Pike!

Support our community with this year’s in-person luncheon benefit

Our 2023 Columbia Pike Progress Luncheon serves as a celebration of the economic progress of the Pike over the past few decades as well as a look toward the future growth and development planned in the next few years. Our luncheon this year is back in person, and we are incredibly excited to see our community gather again as we discuss the vision, possibilities, and opportunities for our community.

Please join the Columbia Pike Partnership, our speakers, and panelists on Thursday, April 20th as we discuss the vision, possibilities, opportunities, and next steps.
