THANK YOU FRIENDS!

Posted by Josée Kleinbaum on June 19, 2018 | 1 comment

Chers amis, it is with great emotion and gratitude that we are writing to thank you for having joined us in celebrating the 30th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris. Initially the idea of bringing together Parisians and foreigners for this anniversary was met with concern and enthusiasm on both the French side and the international community. Both organisations have their particularities so certain adaptations were necessary to carry out this ambitious project.

Let’s start with the basics… What is Le Dîner en Blanc?

Le Dîner en Blanc is a much-anticipated annual event, the location of which is only revealed at the very last minute. Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.

What makes Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris different from all other Le Dîner en Blanc events?

Since its creation, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris has been defined as an unusual "gathering" and not a formatted "event". First, it does not receive any official authorization, except for the good will of the authorities. This tolerance is the result of 30 years of history, an impeccable organization, a respect for the event locations, a show for thousands of passers-by, and the behaviour of participants as elegant as they are disciplined. Furthermore, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris is free for Parisians who manage to receive an invitation. The happy few receive an invitation from a member of the organization. Being invited to Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris is a prized opportunity.

I have already participated in a Le Dîner en Blanc in my city. Should I expect a similar process?

Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris sets itself apart from other international events in many ways. Participation to the Parisian Edition offers a very different experience. For the international guests, which are used to a more structured organization, it is important to put yourself in a positive frame of mind, one that will embrace “imperfections” and, in all likelihood, spontaneity! But hey, aren’t these amusing and unexpected situations the ones that provide some of the most beautiful memories over time?

Is there a risk of being bothered by the authorities while participating in Le Diner en Blanc de Paris?

In its 30 years of history, the authorities have never interfered with this gathering. The first editions certainly raised questions, even some concerns. However, time and the disciplined organization of the 30 previous editions have helped it garner the international reputation it is known for today.

What are the key rules of the event?

Le Dîner en Blanc, and even more so the Paris event requires from the participants an exemplary citizenship and discipline. Here are the main rules:

● Guests commit to attend, rain or shine, no matter the circumstance.

● Exude Elegance … in white. Originality is encouraged, as long as it remains elegant and tasteful.

● Bring your own table, chairs, and picnic basket.

● Follow the Volunteer Leader’s instructions.

● Arrive and leave with your Leader. Nobody arrives at the site on their own.

● Drink responsibly. Champagne or wine only. No spirits or beer.

● Clean up: Take all your garbage with you and clean the area around your table.

If you do not comply with any of these rules, you will no longer be able to register for future Dîner en Blanc events.

Can I book my flight and hotel now?

It is preferable that you buy your flight before registering for Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris. Registration is non-refundable, and renders your attendance, as well as your guest’s, mandatory.

Should I travel with my equipment (table, chairs, etc.)?

In order to facilitate logistics for international participants, tables, chairs, picnic baskets, champagne, wine, etc. will soon be available via Le Dîner en Blanc Paris World website. Please note that there will be no on-site distribution the evening of the event. You must pick up your order prior to the event at a central location in Paris. Please make sure to consider this in the planning your trip.

Will you be offering catering baskets, champagne, or wine on your website?

Yes, we will offer different options shortly.
