Washington, DC (September 5, 2014) – Last night, the world’s largest dinner party – Dîner en Blanc – landed in the nation’s capital, in partnership with Moët Ice Impérial.
Yards Park welcomed over 1,400 Washingtonians to the DC debut. Dîner en Blanc is the world’s first viral event, part impromptu picnic, part mystery dinner. Launched in France in 1988, the storied Paris tradition attracts more than 15,000 people every year.
To preserve spontaneity and secrecy, the très chic picnic takes over landmark public spaces in cities around the country, whose locations are revealed at the last minute to the delight of thousands of attendees.
Guests made a toast to the evening with champagne dressed for the occasion. Moët Ice Impérial joined Dîner en Blanc as the event’s official champagne partner for five cities nationwide, with last night’s event being its official introduction to the DC market.
