    Hi! I'm not sure which one is correct.

    1. 5th Anniversary Vegetarian Charity Dinner

    2. 5th Anniversary Charity Vegetarian Dinner

    The first is better. "Charity dinner" is a more or less set phrase.

    I agree with Keith but, by the way, I am wondering if it's the fifth anniversary of something, or simply the fifth (annual) charity dinner.

    It is an annual dinner. This is the 5th anniversary charity dinner with only vegetarian meals served. So, I'm not sure where should I place the word "vegetarian".

    I agree with Keith about that point. If it's a dinner to raise funds for a charity, then it's a 'charity dinner' and we wouldn't put anything between those words. I don't think anybody would read it as a dinner for a vegetarian charity.
