Tonight’s the night, YYC – the 5th annual Le Dîner en Blanc is officially kicking off at 6:30 pm at…drumroll please…Shaw Millennium Park!
If you’re heading to this spot, located at 1220 9 Ave SW next to the Bow River, you’ll see over a thousand enthusiasts decked out in head-to-toe white gathering for an elegant picnic evening.
- Dîner en Blanc returns to a secret location in Calgary this summer
- 18 Calgary food events worth checking out this September
- Slurpee 'Name Your Price Day' returns this September
- 17th Avenue is shutting down for The Roadblock Party this weekend
So ignore the last bit of smoke in the air, because there’s fun to be had and people to see. Remember – guests are expected to BYO tables, chairs, white linens, and can opt to prepare their own picnic baskets, unless you opted for the catered option.
Attendees of Dîner en Blanc are asked to consider using transit, as parking in the area may be difficult. Street parking is free after 6 pm, and there’s also a city lot located in the southeast corner of the park.
