TOOWOOMBA – From global phenomenon to highly sought-after “secret”, Le Dîner en Blanc, the pop-up picnic event will be held in Toowoomba for the first time on Saturday 20 October 2018.
The garden city is set to join the ranks of over 130,000 foodies and cultural enthusiasts around the world who have already embraced this unique event. On June 3rd of this year, Le Diner en Blanc de Paris marked its 30th anniversary! A record 17,000 guests from Paris and around the world gathered at the Esplanade des Invalides to celebrate this historic moment.
Some of the city's leading business identities and celebrities, such as Samantha Heathwood, are excited the event is coming to the city.
Major sponsor Dan Dwan of Colliers International is pleased to support an internationally-recognised event in the region.
"We have a beautiful city and Le Diner en Blanc is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Toowoomba to the World," says Mr Dwan.
What began as a 'friends and word-of-mouth only' event has grown into an international epicurean sensation in 80 cities in 30 countries. While the technology behind the event may has changed over the years, the principles fuelling this fantastic event have not: guests continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most beautiful locations.
