The yearly extravaganza, where guests don all-white, promises another evening of dining and excitement, as it acquires a secret public location, revealed only minutes prior to the commence of the event.
Last year, Le Dîner en Blanc – Washington sold out in minutes to 5,000 guests. Over the course of the evening, 5,000 guests will once again dine and celebrate the sixth anniversary of Le Dîner en Blanc – Washington amid live music, entertainment and dancing.
Each year, guests bring their all-white tables, chairs and table settings, and the truly ambitious create their own French picnics with extravagant, inventive tablescapes. For those looking for a more convenient option, attendees can rent a table and chairs from Rentals to Remember.
For out-of-town guests or those looking to turn the evening into a staycation, Dîner en Blanc – Washington has partnered with the Sofitel.
“We are thrilled and incredibly proud to bring Le Dîner en Blanc back to Washington for its sixth year,” says Linda Davis, Dîner en Blanc co-host and principal of The Davis Group. “Every year we have one common goal – to bring people together at a secret location to share a gourmet meal.”
Registration for the unique experience happens in three stages beginning later next month: Phase 1 is for members who attended the previous year; Phase 2 is for new members who have been sponsored by Phase 1 attendees; and Phase 3 is for guests who signed up on the waiting list. Those interested can sign up at washington.dinerenblanc.com/register.
On Saturday, August 24 from 6 – 10 p.m., Washington, D.C. will host the sixth annual Le Dîner en Blanc.
