An Unforgettable Experience

Every summer, the Okanagan Valley is illuminated with a sea of white as hundreds of locals and tourists gather to celebrate Diner En Blanc Okanagan. The event promises an evening of elegance, mystery, and community in the Okanagan.

Originating from Paris, France, Diner En Blanc has evolved into a global phenomenon known for its unique concept. Attendees are invited to share a gourmet meal in a secret location, disclosed only minutes before the event commences. This surprise element adds a dash of excitement and suspense, captivating participants year after year.

The Okanagan edition is particularly popular for its spectacular backdrop. Located between crystal-clear lakes and rolling vineyards, Kelowna provides an unforgettable setting that further elevates the enchanting experience of Diner En Blanc.

In keeping with tradition, attendees are expected to dress in white from head to toe, adhering to the chic and elegant theme. The spectacle of a crowd adorned in white, set against the natural splendour of the Okanagan Valley, makes for a striking sight.

Attendees are also required to bring their white tables, chairs, and picnic baskets filled with fine food. However, if you prefer, there are catering options available for pre-order. Remember, the aim is to create a spontaneous yet sophisticated “pop-up” dinner party.

Diner En Blanc Okanagan is also celebrated for its rich cultural components. The event usually involves live music, dancing, and other performances that highlight local talent. As the night culminates in a sea of sparklers, attendees are often left in awe, marking the close of an evening filled with laughter, conversation, and community spirit.

In order to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants, it's essential to adhere to the event's rules and guidelines, which can be found on the official Diner En Blanc Okanagan website. The event is ticketed, with registration opening a few weeks prior. Early booking is recommended due to the high demand.
