DEB VAN FEATURE

Last night, over 3,500 people showed up in white at David Lam Park in Yaletown for the annual Dîner en Blanc Vancouver.

Twenty-five years ago, the event began in Paris and has since spawned to hundreds of other cities around the world. The Paris event now draws accommodates 14,000 participants while New York City’s event is capped at 4,000 participants.

Vancouverites were introduced to Dîner en Blanc in 2012 when local organizers held an event at Jack Poole Plaza for 1,200 people. In 2013, the event was held at Creekside Park adjacent to Science World and had a capacity of 2,500, with a waiting list of 12,000. This year’s waiting list soared to 35,000.

Following tradition, attendees last night were informed of the Yaletown location at the very last minute.

With incredible demand, organizers continued to increase the $35 ticketed event’s capacity, raising it to 3,200 this year. They also greatly improved the calibre of this year’s event with extravagant decorations, performances by Vancouver Opera, acrobatics, stilt walkers and a finer menu package catered by David Hawksworth.

Due to high demand for the Vancouver event, a separate Diner en Blanc event is also scheduled for Whistler next week on August 28.
