Thursday night Diner en Blanc returned to Toronto for another spectacular outdoor epicurean feast. Toronto’s 4th annual pop-up culinary event took over an area of the city’s waterfront at the Harbourfront Centre, right near the Power Plant, as over 2,000 guests dressed in all-white attire arrived from various meeting points across the city carrying their foldable tables, chairs, picnic baskets filled with food and wine, candles, and mandatory all-white decor.

Originating in Paris, France over 25 years ago, Diner en Blanc is a globally-celebrated dinner party where attending guests dressed in head to toe white descend upon a previously undisclosed location to enjoy a meal under the stars. Over one hundred thousand members participate in the annual events that take place across Europe and North America every year, with more than 15,000 attending the annual event in Paris.

As the Harbourfront Centre turned into a sea of white, friends and strangers at Toronto’s fourth secret affair bonded over wine and food while taking in a spectacular view of the CN Tower and the city. Sounds of live jazz music filled the air throughout the unique al fresco dining experience until the sun set, sparklers came out and DJ’s took over turning the unique dining experience into an all-white dance party.

In its first year in Toronto, the all-white secret affair took over Fort York, followed by buzz-worthy evening events at a parking lot at Queen and Mutual and Echo Beach at Ontario Place.
