For the fourth year, Vancouver will be hosting the annual Le Diner en Blanc, and unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty, magic, and formalities. This year, over 4,500 people are expected to attend the Tuesday, August 25 event, at a secret location that promises to be another unforgettable evening.
Last year, Vancouver’s Le Diner en Blanc was hosted in Yaletown’s David Lam Park. The secret picnic event is hosted in over 60 cities in more than 25 counties around the world.
The signature event is known for having large groups of guests, dressed completely in white, meeting at gathering spots all around the city, and then converging on the secret location all at once.
Guests must bring their own table, chairs, table settings, and of course their meal. Everything must be completely white. Throughout the evening there is music, entertainment, dancing, and celebration moments including “the waiting of the napkins” to mark the beginning of dinner, and the lighting of the sparklers to let guests know they can get up and mingle.
At the end of the evening a trumpet sounds and all the guests pack up their belongings and head into the night, leaving behind no sign of the elegant event.
Registration for the Vancouver Le Diner en Blanc event is open until Monday August 3. The event happens, rain or shine.
