What does a typical OITF event look like?

Our events typically last 4.5-5 hours. Upon arrival you will check in with our host, where your name will be on the guest list (there are no physical tickets to our events). The festivities begin with a reception featuring welcome beverages and an assortment of passed appetizers. Once everyone has arrived, you’ll hear from your hosts. Then, we will take a tour of the property, if applicable.

Following reception, we will invite guests to join us at the table. Dinner is usually served 2 hours after the event begins. There is no assigned seating (unless you are joining us with a group of 5 or more people), and everyone sits down together at the same time to enjoy a four course dinner with wine pairings.

Dinner is served on family-style platters that everyone shares to celebrate the fruits of the land and the labors of all involved by breaking bread with each other.

What if I accidentally leave something behind at an event?

If you leave something behind, we will always do our best to get it back to you. Please reach out to  with information about what was left.  We will connect with the event host and notify you if your property was recovered.

Please keep in mind that most of our events end after dark, which means our team will not always be able to locate misplaced items during the breakdown process. Please be conscious of what you bring with you to an event, as we are in varied terrain and there are often unforeseen circumstances. We provide a place to store bags, jackets and other belongings during the event for your convenience, but we are not liable for lost or stolen property.

Can Outstanding in the Field accommodate my accessibility needs?

In the adventurous spirit of Outstanding in the Field, many of our event locations have uneven terrain. If you require additional assistance or have medical needs that you’d like to communicate with us, please reach out to us so we can help you enjoy the event to the fullest. Please keep in mind that there is an implied Assumption of Risk of Damage or Injury at our events. We work tirelessly to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, but we do encounter a variety of terrains and climatesand weather can change without warning. If you have questions about the accessibility of a certain event, please email us at reservations@outstandinginthefield.com.

Can I bring my own alcohol/beverages?

No, outside alcohol is strictly prohibited at our events. Our events include a variety of beverages at the welcome reception and wine & non-alcoholic beverage pairings at the dinner table.

Is transportation provided to/from the event?

Guests are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event. Because our events include alcohol service, we suggest that you arrange for a designated driver or plan for a driving service to get you home safely. As events are often off the map, it is not always possible to call an rideshare or taxi from the table. It is best to arrange for transportation in advance.

Is there assigned seating at events?

Sitting next to new friends is part of the Outstanding in the Field experience. Everyone takes their seat at the long table at once, therefore our table does not have assigned seating. However, if you are in a party of five or more we are able to assist in seating you together with advanced notice. If you have purchased tickets under separate reservations but are part of a large party of five or more, please notify us of each reservation name so that we can group you together.

Where can I find photos from my event?

Per our agreement with Event Photographers, we are unable to provide direct access to event photos for guests. However, if the photos from the event you attended are shared on social media, the respective photographer will be tagged. Should you wish to purchase any event photos, we encourage you to reach out to the photographer directly.

What if an event is postponed?

In the case of an event being postponed due to circumstances beyond Outstanding in the Field’s control, Outstanding in the Field will reschedule said event and all purchases will be honored for the rescheduled future event date. No monetary refunds will be issued. If a guest is unable to attend the rescheduled event, Outstanding in the Field will issue a credit for the original purchase amount, for the guest to use toward another OITF event of their choice.

What should I wear to an OITF event?

We love to see your farm fashion, but we want to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable, as well as stylish. Our dinners take place on all sorts of natural terrain – in the fields of working farms and vineyards, alongside rivers and seashores. Additionally, events are held rain or shine. Please dress according to the weather and remember to wear comfortable walking shoes. It often gets chilly in the evening (even after a warm day) so please come prepared with a jacket or blankets to keep you comfortable. We anticipate many beautiful sunsets this coming season and recommend you bring a hat or sunglasses as needed.

Can I bring my pet?

No, pets are not allowed at our events. If you plan to bring a registered service animal for a necessary medical condition, please let us know in advance so that we can make arrangements to accommodate you.
