Lasting only a few magical hours, the annual impromptu all-white picnic—Dîner en Blanc— appeared on the lawns of Irving Park in James Bay Thursday night.

The event’s 8th annual iteration was originally scheduled to take place June 2020, but like other events, was paused due to COVID-19.

As in previous years, attendees learned of the secret location at the last minute.

Bringing their own immaculate white linens, tables, chairs, china and glassware, there were countless settings fit for a king and queen! Many brought their own gourmet treats, while Truffles Catering provided decadent picnic boxes for others.

Ending in the famous sparkler send-off, revelers then took to Belleville’s to party the night away!
