It will be a white-out in June.

More than 2,000 people are expected to take part in Le Dîner en Blanc on June 25.

The annual “Dinner in White” will be held in a secret location.

“Diner en Blanc combines a beautiful outdoor venue, such as St. Ann’s Academy or Fisherman’s Wharf Park – Victoria’s previous event locations – with the sophistication of a gourmet picnic,” said Tyson Villeneuve, owner of the Social Concierge, the event management company tasked with organizing the Victoria event.

Le Dîner en Blanc is an evening event where guests arrive – dressed head-to-toe in white – to various spots throughout the city and then travel on foot and by coach guided by volunteers to a secret location for an evening of fine food, wine and entertainment.

Guests bring their own table, chairs, table setting and gourmet picnic. Those who may not have the time to pack their own gourmet picnic can once again count on Dan Hayes, The London Chef, who will provide three catered food options.

Those interested in the event may register online at victoria.dinerenblanc.info/register, with the first round of ticket sales beginning this week. Tickets are $74 per couple.
