From global phenomenon to highly sought-after “secret”, Le Dîner en Blanc will take over one of South Georgian Bay’s public spaces on Saturday, September 8th for the first ever installment of this refined pop-up epicurean event.
Now for the first time ever, South Georgian Bay will host its own Le Dîner en Blanc, thanks to local hosts Lori D’Agostino, Lisa Farano and Steven Vipond. “Le Dîner en Blanc captures the spirit of friendship, community, creativity and culture. Le Dîner en Blanc - South Georgian Bay will be deeply rooted in collaboration with our community, including artisans, restauranteurs, local suppliers and volunteers.” states host Lisa Farano. “We are committed to creating a distinctive, clever and dynamic event that connects with guests and leaves a long-lasting impression” states host Steven Vipond. “Our wish is to pay homage to this chic pop-up outdoor dining experience. Le Dîner en Blanc - South Georgian Bay will be interactive, immersive and undeniable” states host Lori D’Agostino.
The JUNO Awards are coming up this weekend and I thought no better time then to throw it back to the 2016 JUNO Awards in Calgary where I was fortunate enough to work on behalf of the JUNO Host Committee to coordinate the event logistics surrounding some of their community engagement activations.
Tom Wilson explaining to the audience that the "creative process saved my life... from a school kid to today" under the moody glow of Crow's iconic neon sign buzzing out the words "MUSIC SAVES" was an unforgettable moment from a beautiful night.
