Previous years have seen Table for 1200 staged at the grounds of the Manitoba Legislature and across Esplanade Riel

An event designed to celebrate food, design and everything white will return

to Winnipeg later this month.

Called Table for 1200, the event will see a table set for well, you guessed it, 1,200 people, at a mystery location somewhere in the city, to be announced an hour before dinner is set to begin.

Previous years have seen the table set at the grounds of the Manitoba Legislature and across the Esplanade Riel.

Organizers issued a release Thursday, touting the event as a not-to-miss pop-up outdoor dining soiree, where attendees are encouraged create a ‘Winnipeg White Out’ by dressing head to toe in white. 

The event is expected to feature dinner prepared by local chefs from Deer + Almond, as well as a design competition for the best table setting, where winners are awarded $1,200 in prizes.

Organizer say this year’s event will take place Saturday, May 28 from 7-9 p.m.

 Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
