About Le Dîner en Blanc

Le Dîner en Blanc is so much more than an event. It’s a unique cultural movement that empowers friends of friends to gather and celebrate their shared passions for life, food, fashion, and community, year after year, with a pinch of mystery and large serving of spontaneity. Elegantly dressed all in white, guests arrive at a secret location for a chic picnic en masse. They bring their own tables, chairs, picnic baskets—all the trimmings—to sit down with friends and make new connections in one of their city’s most beautiful public spaces. The location remains secret up until the very moment of arrival. Over the course of the evening, guests from all backgrounds eat, dance, and reconnect with the finer things in life, as they appreciate the night’s magical experience.

To this day, over 120 cities in 40 countries have joined the ever-growing and international network to celebrate gourmet cuisine, offer extraordinary entertainment, and bring together vibrant individuals and bon vivants around the world. While Dîner en Blanc International is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, every event in every city is hosted by passionate local organizers who fell in love with the original Parisian concept and wanted to bring it home and dress it up with local flair.

Please let me know if any of you will not be able to attend.

Two tickets are better than none. If you do not have four then two will do!

Hello This will be my first Diner En Blanc Atlanta, and so excited to attend. I do have a question, Are shopping carts allowed to transport our table and chairs into the venue, and does it have to be white?
Denise G.
Good evening. Small foldable shopping carts are allowed. Cart must fold down and fit under you table as to not be seen. Doesn’t specifically have to be white as it will be stored under your table.
