Hot Ticket: The Rosé Picnic is back!

Calling all rosé lovers: the Rosé Picnic, Canada’s largest rosé festival, is back for its second year!

The Rosé Picnic: A Premium Event Like No Other

Today, August 11th, the newly-restored Stanley Barracks at Hotel X Toronto will be transformed into a sea of pink and white as 3,500 guests soak up summer on the lush grounds. Rosé lovers will enjoy unobstructed views of the city skyline and dozens of rosés all day paired with delicious food offerings from Chef Mark McEwan’s signature restaurants.

From 11am to 11pm, the grounds will be filled with a sea of pink with over 3,000 of Toronto’s most laid back wine enthusiasts soak up the summer enjoying dozens of rosés paired with Chef Mark McEwan’s iconic signature dishes from the likes of ONE Restaurant, Bymark, North 44, Diwan and Fabbrica. And for every ticket sold, $2.50 will provide a meal for a child through Feeding Canadian Kids 

The Food

Carefully curated signature dishes by Chef Mark McEwan. Taking cues from last year’s successful inaugural event, the food concept will be set up more like food stations so you can come and go as you please and eat as much as your heart desires.

The Drinks

The festival’s featured rosé wines include Rrosé, Hogwash (a pleasant, lightly fruity, easy drinking rosé),  XOXO (a light bodied refreshing rosé with a touch of spice) and Thirty Bench (a medium bodied, dry rosé wine) by Peller Estates and Moet & Chandon Rosé Champagne among other premium wines, beers and cocktails.

The Event

Every guest will receive a break-free wine glass for outdoor enjoyment and the first 1000 guests will receive a complimentary pink picnic blanket. Festival-goers will enjoy premium vendors and activations including bocce ball in the Games Garden, make-up touch-ups with Lancôme, mini-manicures at the nail bar, strolling fashion shows, a Peller Estates Flower Wall & Flower Crown station, and rosé flavoured gummies at the sweet- treat mobile cart. Beyond wining and dining, guests can dance the day away to DJ Mark Oliver, DJ iKhan and Tom Wrecks.

Dress code is enforced so make sure you wear pink and white as there will be plenty of beautiful backdrops throughout for photo opps – use the hashtag #RosePicnicTO.
