You're invited to ignite your senses!

Smell. Taste. Touch.

It’s not unusual to close your eyes and savour a bite of your favourite dish ... but have you ever consumed an entire meal that way – replacing sight with touch, taste and texture? 

Based on a restaurant concept popularized in Paris and New York, Dining in the Dark is a signature CNIB event where diners experience a meal without the use of their sight.  

Participants wear blindfolds for a unique, sensory experience in which they can explore their meal in a whole new way!  

Funds raised at Dining in the Dark support innovative local programs and powerful advocacy that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams while tearing down barriers to inclusion.

Please join us for an unforgettable night of sensory exploration through aromas, flavours and textures.
