Diner en blanc

Diner en Blanc returns to Toronto this summer

Diner en Blanc is coming back to Toronto this summer on Thursday, August 27. The secret dinner party (the location isn't revealed until just prior to the event) has a loyal following in Toronto, where its taken place in various settings over the last three years.

In its first year in Toronto, the white-clad dinner party took place at Fort York, followed by stints at a parking lot at Queen and Mutual and Echo Beach. Organizers estimate that 1,500 people participated last year, and expect 2,000 to come out this year.

Guests are required to bring their own table, chairs, and white table setting (complete with proper stemware) as well as food and drink (no beer or hard liquor allowed!). It's certainly quite the spectacle, and designed to be almost tribalistic with a participation policy that encourages guests from a previous years to extend an invitation to newbies who would otherwise be placed on a waiting list.

But, hey, what better chance is there to bust out your best white attire a week before Labour Day? For updates on Diner en Blanc 2015, check out the official website.
