Diner en Blanc Vancouver 2016

On August 18th, Vancouver’s best dressed (in blanc, of course) converged downtown at Concord Pacific Place for the most anticipated dinner party of the summer—Le Dîner en Blanc.

Produced locally by event agency The Social Concierge, the communal dining experience brings the French tradition, which originated in Paris in 1988, to Vancouver each August.

Diners bring their own tables, chairs and food to indulge in a spectacular evening at a location that's announced just hours before the event starts. The dinner kicks off with the waving of the napkins and closes with sparklers lighting up the night sky to music.
