Dîner en Blanc Montreal – The city’s largest dinner party is making its comeback on August 18th!

The 12th edition of the Dîner en Blanc Montreal will take place on August 18th. Once again, the unique location is kept secret until the very last day!  

To keep your curiosity growing, attendees will meet at a predetermined location where they will be greeted by a volunteer and escorted by bus or metro. The astonishing secret venue will then be revealed to the guests.

Dine in luxury at Diner en Blanc this summer in Montreal
The Dîner en Blanc’s three rules are: Elegance, friendliness and good manners.

Eccentric or classic, be remarkable!

This year, Rox-Out, the creative agency of the evening, is offering guests the opportunity to continue the festivities until the wee hours of the night after this exciting celebration. As many other cities around the world do, the organization encourages guests to travel by foot or by metro. Ready to dare? 

Dressed to impress, Montreal will be echoing to the sounds of glasses cheering, people laughing and head in sync with music! Surrounded by thousands of hearts beating to the same beats. Bring out your pearls, your linen shirts, your white flower crowns, your long dresses, your masks and most importantly your audacious class! Please remember that no nuances of white will be permitted. 

Feel free to bring your own gourmet menu! If you’re not a 5 star chef, we have your back. Chefs Joey Awad of SHAY Restaurant and Christopher Ranco from Blandino and Pancho will tantalize your taste buds with their 5 and 6 course menus.
