Established in 1988 by François Pasquier in Paris, with the simple intention of gathering his friends after a long journey, Le “very secret” Dîner en Blanc has evolved through word of mouth to become a tradition that attracts close to 15,000 people yearly showcasing prestigious sites in the French Capital.

Three years ago Dîner en Blanc International was created with the goal of sharing this wonderful concept with the rest of the world. The concept spread at an inconceivable rate and became a viral phenomenon that attracts and connects people from different backgrounds, all around the globe, forging bonds, and building a close network of friends.

From humble beginnings in a single city, Le Diner en Blanc is presently being held in over 20 countries, 50 cities, and has gained more than 100,000 new friends!

Like Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, Sydney, Singapore, Mexico City and more than 50 other cities before them, Niagara’s new hosts will proudly host its first Dîner en Blanc this summer!

The worldwide love for this event stems from the dedication and passion of the local Hosts who have worked very hard to reproduce this magical evening in their city.Niagara’s dream team is made up the 3 devoted hosts: Steven Hellmann, Viviana Paula Kohon and Namita Walsh, to whom the exciting event planning world holds no secrets!

To make history and get the chance to attend this grand premiere, register now to be on the waiting list: niagara.dinerenblanc.info/register.

It will be a night of fostering old friendships, making new friendships, experiencing the social event of the year, and, potentially winning some great prizes from our sponsors and partners.
