Vancouver’s biggest fancy picnic just got bigger.
Diner en Blanc is back this Aug. 21 and this year 3,200 tickets are up for grabs. The unique al fresco dining event sees thousands of people dressed entirely in white converge on a secret location for the mother-of-all picnics.
Past Diners en Blanc in Vancouver have proven exceedingly popular. In 2012, a “diner” was staged at Jack Poole Plaza at the Vancouver Convention Centre, drawing 1,200 guests. Last year, 2,600 diners in white took over the grassy park in front of Science World on False Creek. The location for this year’s event is, of course, a secret: Attendees will only find out on the day of the dinner.
