Montreal's most exclusive dinner party is now accepting RSVPs.
Montreal's "Secret" Diner En Blanc Date Is Officially Set For August 2014

The fanciest of all Montreal summer picnics, Diner en Blanc, now has a formalized date. On August 14th, get ready to wine, dine, and have a chic-as-hell time at sixth edition of Diner en Blanc Montreal.

What began in Paris 25 years ago has become a worldwide dining-phenomenon where crowds of folks don the whites in their wardrobes and gather to eat, drink, and party into the night and early morning. A spectacle for all the senses, DEB is a true cultural experience.

As is the case every year, the location for DEB is not revealed to attendees until they board the bus to go to the event and arrive, in order to maintain secrecy/exclusivity.  Previous spots have been Place des Arts and the Olympic Stadium, and we can only speculate the locale of this year's chic-picnic.

All you can do to secure your spot is to register well before the event. The waiting list is now open, and if you're not one of Montreal's elite, you may want to get your name on the list now, before spots fill up.

Get all the info at Diner en Blanc's website here.
