New Hosting Team for the 2019 edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Calgary

Launched in Paris in 1988 by François Pasquier and a handful of friends, Le Dîner en Blanc has become a worldwide epicurean phenomenon. In June 2018, 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.

Today, Dîner en Blanc is annually held in over to 80 cities in 30 countries and has gained well close to 130,000 new friends worldwide. Each event is headed by passionate local organizers who fell in love with the concept and who wanted to bring it to their city, adding their own local flair while respecting the event's core values.

Along with Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Montreal, Toronto, Washington DC, Sydney, Singapore, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Calgary is already a proud host of Le Dîner en Blanc, having held its inaugural edition in 2019. The event returns this year with a new hosting team!

The new dream team is made up of the following devoted hosts: Nichol Turner and Gill Boyd, to whom the exciting world of event-planning holds no secrets!

To get the chance to attend this new edition, sign up for the waiting list now: Tell your friends!


Wishing you the best of luck with your preparations and an amazing event!

Hello in reading the comments below this looks like it has been a similar theme. But I am going to anyways. We have not yet received a return invite and am wondering if it is closed if we are able to register or if we will be put in the wait list. If someone could get back to me that would be great!

Thank you,

My friend received her Phase 1 invite today. We have both been members since the first year and both received the save the date notice. I have not received the phase 1 email and my profile indicates one has not been sent. Can you check into this?
Christine B.
Never mind my question. My friend now advises it was a leader invite.

This new hosting team hasn't done a very good job of addressing the issues regarding not being able to register as a returning guest. I have been going for 5 years and now it is saying that registration is closed and I have to register for the wait list. Very disappointed with the changes happening and the information being provided.

No worries Alisa. It shows closed but it hasn't even opened yet.

Hi folks

Not sure what's going on but I see somewhere that the 2019 DEB Calgary registration is CLOSED but I didn't receive a notice that it was even open. Another friend whos gone to all but the first one also didn't receive any notice. I've attended DEB since the first one here in Calgary. My DEB account page says I will be notified of the registration a month before the event and it's not even a month yet. Did not receive any communication on this. What's happening??
Dick T.
No worries Brian. Registration hasn't even begun yet.

I’m a previous participant but it says I need to register for 2019 and be added to phase 3? All the phases are already showing as closed. Is this correct? Thx.

Hello Rebecca! Yes, currently the phases are closed but please stay tuned for more information this coming week regarding this year's upcoming event!
Rebecca T.
Will do, thanks for the quick response!
