The Gala Dinner is one of the premier RCW 139 events, and has been held at every RCW 139 convention. It's a chance to eat a fabulous meal in the company of other Due South fans. As in past events, all guests will be invited to the dinner - previous attendees have included David Marciano, Ramona Milano, and Tom Melissis. There is no dress code for the dinner. Some attendees have typically considered it to be a semi-formal event, but you are free to come as you wish! The dinner will be held in the main ballroom (Forest Hill ballroom) of the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville. This year's dinner will also feature the 2nd RCW 139 group picture - following the tradition initiated in 2008 by David Marciano and Catherine Bruhier!

The dinner will be served as a themed buffet. You may choose to have your main course with the Vecchios, Frasers, or/and Kowalskis! If you have special dietary requirements, please let us know!

There is a separate menu for Adults/Youth and Children. There is no cost for children 3 and under, as long as they do not require their own meal (or you provide it).

Gala Dinner tickets are purchased as part of your convention membership, through the Online Store. The cost is $80 for adults ($70 if you have placed a deposit before 10 February) and $35 for children.
