Le Dîner en Blanc – Okanagan is 5!

Once again this year, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris took place in utmost secrecy. The mystery surrounding the Parisian edition is the essence of this unique concept.

Guests enjoyed a summery day and a wonderful night under the stars.  Our thanks to the Paris authorities. With their kind watch, close to 8,000 friends gathered at Place de l’Hôtel de Ville de Paris for another unique and magical night....
