What is Mountain Al Fresco?
Mountain Al Fresco is a themed pop-up picnic event. Everything is white, from the decorations to the plates to the diner’s outfits! As the name means, this dining experience takes place outdoors in Invermere, BC! Event attendees will enjoy an evening of entertainment, delicious food and great company. This event will take place at a secret location and is to be revealed on the day of the event!
This unique dining experience has taken place annually in Invermere for the past three years (previously under a different name). July 7th, 2018 will be the 4th edition and will be running under new name this year! Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Mountain Al Fresco. We provide the entertainment, scenic location, chairs and tables. You come dressed in white with table décor and a homemade picnic. Once your table is beautifully decorated, sit back and enjoy dining al fresco.
An alfresco activity, especially a meal, is one that takes place in the open air. The phrase al fresco is Italian and when used in the Canadian/ USA relative to dining or restaurants it means outside, or in the fresh air.
