Soiree en Blanc
Jul 8, 2017 6:00 pm
Soiree en Blanc is world-wide phenomenon, an event that began in the 1980s in Paris when a small group of friends planned an intimate dinner where all invited guests had to arrive dressed all in white. The group brought everything with them to a public location – the meal, the wine, the tables and the chairs.
That first event became a wildly popular tradition and today there are Soiree en Blanc events around the globe – in Chicago, in New York, in Italy, Australia, in Canada and yes, even in Invermere.
The annual flash-mob-style dinner event is held at a different secret location each year and the location is not made known until hours before the evening begins. The meal is elegant, the wine spectacular and everything from the attire of the guests to the table-coverings, is white.
The schedule for the 2017 Soiree en Blanc is as follows:
- 12 pm – the mystery event venue revealed by text or email to guests
- 6 pm – event grounds will open
- 7:30 pm – dinner
- 8:30 pm – dance and live music with the Small Town Dirtbags. DJ Wild Bill will also be providing entertainment
The food will be provided by Fuze, Fubuki Sushi,Katie Izzy Nutrition and the Birchwood Restaurant. Vegetarian option available. Pre-purchased meals must be ordered by July 4th.
Guests may also opt to bring their own 3-course, picnic-style meal and even table decorations and wine glasses. Slow Foods has designed free recipes if you wish to bring your own food.
Alcohol will be available and must be purchased on-site rather than being brought in. You can pre-order the alcohol of your choice, however.
