La Saveur en Blanc, which roughly translates to “the flavour in white” is the theme of Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant’s annual “Taste of Glenhyrst” event. The highly-anticipated event will take place on June 18, 2020 in Glenhyrst Gardens, a beautifully landscaped sixteen-acre park on the banks of the Grand River.
Welcome the warm weather at Taste of Glenhyrst, the 23rd anniversary of one of the community’s most loved fundraising events. Lucky ticket holders will enjoy incredible live music, and unlimited food and drink from some of the area’s best local restaurants, wineries and breweries.
La Saveur en Blanc is Glenhyrst’s take on the famous, worldwide event, Diner en Blanc. At Diner en Blanc guests are invited to dress all in white, set up temporary dining and gourmet picnic in a public space and enjoy the entertainment and theatrics.
The concept originated in Paris in 1988 by a Frenchman inviting a group of people to an elegant outdoor dinner, stipulating the white dress code so they could find one another. The event has since grown to over 85 cities around the world.
Tickets go on sale March 24, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. so set your alarms on your phone. This popular event sold out in under one hour last year! All guests must be at least 19 years of age or older to attend.
All of the proceeds from this event go towards Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant’s many children’s programs, art exhibitions, special events, classes, and workshops—many of which are offered to the community for no or a very low cost, thanks to fundraising events like this one.

*UPDATE* Glenhyrst has decided to postpone their ticket sale until the uncertainty of event attendance has settled. There is no plans to cancel the event at this time. Stay tuned for updates!
