Dear Niagara members & friends!   On Sunday, August 30, 2015 Niagara experienced the return of Diner en Blanc in what was one of the most spectacular settings; the Oakes Garden Theatre, overlooking Niagara Falls. Friendships were strengthened and new friendships were formed as people from all over came together; some traveled from as far as London, Blue Mountain, Ajax, and even from upstate New York, U.S. What made us most proud to ...

Most viewed questions

What are the membership and transaction fee for?

Membership and transaction fees are used to cover the inherent costs of training, support and technological services to all the organizers from around the world, to enable them to organize their own event, graciously offered by Diner en Blanc International. These services allow us to preserve the values conveyed by the concept, to sustain the corporate standards by regrouping them within a single network and, to develop these technical tools. The membership offers members a number of online services that will be multiplied in the coming years. Diner en Blanc International is working in updating its platforms - release planned for 2016 - in order for all participants of a Dîner en Blanc event to become members. In addition, this annual fee will allow members to register for as many Dîner en Blanc events in the world as they wish.

Is it an illegal activity?

Le Dîner en Blanc - Paris is held on the most prestigious sites of the city, without authorization. The first editions were not easy to put in place. Today, the French authorities know the organization and know that it’s always well controlled. Moreover, the event’s photogenic quality adds to the city’s image of a modern and stylish city, open to the world. To ensure the safety of our International DEB guests, we require that the local hosts have the proper authorization, permits and insurances before proceeding with their event.

How many Dîner en Blanc events are there in the world?

There are close to 60 events scheduled, or in the process of being approved for 2015! Most take place in North America and Europe with a total of one hundred thousand members participating each year. The largest and most internationally recognized Dîner en Blanc, is the original event in Paris. Instigated over 27 years ago by François Pasquier and his close friends, it attracts today almost 15,000 people yearly. The second largest event is based in Montreal, Canada with 5,500 guests.

I have seen that many of your events worldwide are associated with certain brands, is there a possibility for sponsorship opportunities?

Dîner en Blanc International prides itself on being associated with some of the most exciting and elegant brands worldwide, however this event is first and foremost a dinner amongst friends and is not intended to be an event overly saturated with brand and marketing opportunities.

What must guests bring?

A table, two (white) chairs, a picnic basket comprised of quality menu items and china dinner service. They must wear white and be dressed elegantly. Originality is encouraged as long as it stays stylish and denotes taste.

Is the Dîner en Blanc really free?

Le Dîner en Blanc is first and foremost a gathering of friends. It is a non-commercial, organisation. The fee required of guests goes to cover the costs inherent to the organisation, e.g., bus rental, electricity, sound system, lighting, security, photographic and video services, and other small surprises peculiar to each event…

What are the key rules of the event?

Le Dîner en Blanc is quite different from other evenings. Seats are allotted on site in a very specific manner. - Once confirmed, the presence of each guest thus becomes essential and mandatory, whatever happens and regardless of weather conditions; - Colour: white only; - Bring a picnic basket, white table cloth, table (between 28”x28” and 32”x32”) and foldable chairs (white); - Arrive and depart by bus or organised public transit; - Bring one’s refuse when departing and leave the place as clean as it was upon arrival.

How can we participate?

One must know a member of the organisation to receive an invitation. In other words, it’s a friendly co-optation system.

Dîner en Blanc


Think you have an eye for design? Our amazing sponsor, the White Oaks Resort & Spa will be the judge of that. They are graciously sponsoring the best dressed table. Representatives from the White Oaks will be roaming around, and, if your table is chosen as the best dressed, you will win a weekend getaway to the White Oaks Resort, including a luxury suite, breakfast for two, dinner for two, and a spa treament each. This contest is enough motivation to ensure that your table is as well dressed as you are.

By the way, if you are thinking of staying overnight, the White Oaks is providing an exlusive package to Diner En Blanc guests for Sunday accomodation. We'll see you at breakfast!


Gentlemen, this is your chance to show that you can hold your own when it comes to style. Our fantastic partner,Surmesur, will have their fashion police on site to keep an eye out for the best dressed man. This is the one time you will want to get pulled over by the police. Show us your best style and the best dressed man will win a gift certificate for a custom suit, valued to up to $600. By the way, if you are looking for a white outfit, it would not hurt to go and get fitted by our favourite custom menswear shop and elevate your style.


Food is central to any great event. Make sure you post picutres of your delicious picnic to social media, and, hashtag it with #DEBNiagara2015. The tastiest pictures will win gift certificates for a Foodies on Foot food tour.
