SAVE THE DATE! Wednesday, September 17th
The annual secret affair, promises an unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic, as it takes over an undisclosed public space whose location will be revealed only a couple of hours prior to the commencement of the event. Over 1,000 foodies and cultural enthusiasts dressed in white have attended the event in the past and 1,400 are expected this year.
“We’re thrilled to once again organize Dîner en Blanc in Toronto,” says Jessica Tan, 2014 DEB event co-host. “Our city’s thriving culinary scene is the perfect backdrop for this tres chic picnic imported from Paris.”
In essence, Dîner en BlancÒ promotes friendship, elegance and gallantry. Over the course of the evening, the diners enhance the function and value of their city’s public space by participating in the unexpected. Beyond the spectacle and refined elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by a love of beauty and good taste. “Toronto’s culture is a reflection of Dîner en BlancÒ’s core values,” say co-founders Sandy Safi, Director of Partnership, and Aymeric Pasquier, Executive Director, Dîner en Blanc International. “We feel that this year’s event will be a true success in bringing Torontonians together and highlighting the beauty of their city.”
Dîner en Blanc is promoted entirely via word of mouth and social media. Guests are asked to dress elegantly in white, from head to toe, bring their own epicurean feasts, tables, chairs, fine china, silverware and white tablecloth. Over the course of the evening, the diners eat and celebrate amid live music, dancing, complete with festive white balloons.
Visually breathtaking moments include the waving of a cloth napkin to mark the beginning of the dinner, as well as the lighting of sparklers to let participants know they are now free to circulate, mingle and dance. When the trumpet call sounds the end of the evening, diners pack up their wares, tables, pick up all their litter and head into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
This year, the Dîner en Blanc will take place in 50 cities across the world. Those looking for more information on Dîner en Blanc Toronto can visit https://toronto.dinerenblanc.com/about and can follow the journey via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
