On Wednesday, a sea of white appeared at Bryant Park as 4000 merry guests dined beneath the stars. The atmosphere went from fine dining complete with beautiful table settings, epicurean feasts, and elegant décor, to full fledge dance party – glow sticks, sparklers, and bubbles in tow. We closed out the American Diner en Blanc tour in style and it felt larger than life. Thank you so very much for your continued support, wonderful energy, e...

Is it an illegal activity?

Le Dîner en Blanc - Paris is held on the most prestigious sites of the city, without authorization. The first editions were not easy to put in place. Today, the French authorities know the organization and know that it’s always well controlled. Moreover, the event’s photogenic quality adds to the city’s image of a modern and stylish city, open to the world. To ensure the safety of our International DEB guests, we require that the local hosts have the proper authorization, permits and insurances before proceeding with their event.

How many Dîner en Blanc events are there in the world?

There are close to 40 events scheduled, or in the process of being approved for 2014! Most take place in North America and Europe with a total of one hundred thousand members participating each year. The largest and most internationally recognized Dîner en Blanc, is the original event in Paris. Instigated over 25 years ago by François Pasquier and his close friends, it attracts today almost 15,000 people yearly. The second largest event is based in Montreal, Canada with 5,200 guests.

I have seen that many of your events worldwide are associated with certain brands, is there a possibility for sponsorship opportunities?

Dîner en Blanc International prides itself on being associated with some of the most exciting and elegant brands worldwide, however this event is first and foremost a dinner amongst friends and is not intended to be an event overly saturated with brand and marketing opportunities.

What are the key rules of the event?

Le Dîner en Blanc is quite different from other evenings. Seats are allotted on site in a very specific manner. - Once confirmed, the presence of each guest thus becomes essential and mandatory, whatever happens and regardless of weather conditions; - Colour: white only; - Bring a picnic basket, white table cloth, table (between 28”x28” and 32”x32”) and foldable chairs (white); - Arrive and depart by bus or organised public transit; - Bring one’s refuse when departing and leave the place as clean as it was upon arrival.

How can we participate?

One must know a member of the organisation to receive an invitation. In other words, it’s a friendly co-optation system.
