Orlando, FL – April 13, 2016 – Le Dîner en Blanc, the popular Parisian-style pop-up picnic characterized by its famous all-white dress code will take place in Orlando for the first time ever this Fall 2016. The exact date will be announced later on. If you want to be part of this inaugural event, register now on the waiting list at orlando.dinerenblanc.info/register.
Le Dîner en Blanc began in Paris in 1988 when François Pasquier, returning from a long stay abroad, had the idea to gather friends for a picnic. As the number of guests grew, he decided to hold the dinner in a public space and ask everyone to dress in all white to easily recognize one another. Nearly thirty years later, over 10,000 Parisians participate each year. In 2009, the first ever export of Le Dîner en Blanc took place in Montreal, Canada, followed by a first American edition in 2011 in New York City. After its successful New York debut, Diner en Blanc International was created to bring the Parisian secret to more cities around the world. With over 100,000 annual guests, Le Diner en Blanc is now held in over 70 cities all over the world and has been embraced by more than 20 cities in the United States along including Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, Miami, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
Now for the first time ever, Orlando will host its own Diner en Blanc, thanks to local hosts of J.A.G.A. Productions. “Le Diner en Blanc captures the spirit of friendship, glamour, and European elegance,” states Tashima “Tash” Johnson. “We love the history and anticipation of the Diner en Blanc events around the world. We’re excited to bring a little piece of Europe to Orlando and to add some Floridian flair to Diner en Blanc.”
To uphold the traditions of Le Diner en Blanc, guests of around the world must dress head-to-toe in white and are requested to bring their own portable tables, white chairs, white table linens, tableware, and a gourmet meal.
A large part of the excitement surrounding Le Dîner en Blanc is the secrecy surrounding the event location which is kept secret until the very last moment. Guests are given rendezvous to a departure point when they purchase their tickets.
