The World Famous Diner En Blanc Is Returning To The Gold Coast

By Morgan Reardon

It’s probably the most exclusive picnic in town, nay, the world. Le Dîner en Blanc, Paris’ world-famous all-white-attire pop-up picnic is back this April on the Gold Coast, so cue the mass squeals.

If you haven’t been to one of these truly magical dinners before then you’re in for a treat. But first of all, we have a seriously (white) hot tip for you—register for these limited tickets before sales close at midnight 18 April. The event has become a global phenomenon over the years so tickets will go quickly. The exclusive alfresco event will see 1,200 people come together to share a glamorous picnic and wine, dine, and dance the evening away under the stars, turning the mystery location completely white for one night.

Arriving by bus from various pick-up points across the Gold Coast, guests will not know the location until they arrive. Like previous years, Le Dîner en Blanc will keep to its tradition and rules: an elegant all-white dress code, bring your own furniture, table setting and a picnic hamper of fine food and proper glassware, with picnic hampers, wine and champagne available to pre-order.

The soiree begins after the traditional waving of the cloth napkin and from then on, it’s time to pop the champers (which you can pre-order from the team at Le Dîner en Blanc), feast picnic-style and, as darkness descends, light the sparklers and party on to live music under the stars.

Registration to participate in this unique experience happens in three stages: Phase 1 is for members from the previous year; Phase 2 is for new members who are referred by Phase 1 attendees and Phase 3 is for peeps who signed up on the waiting list. If you want to be part of this luxurious experience (okay, but seriously who wouldn’t) you can register for tickets here, before they're gone. 

Le Dîner en Blanc Gold Coast host Sara Walsh says she is thrilled to be returning the event
to the city for another year after its success in previous years and around Australia.
 
“The first Gold Coast event was held in 2017 at Jack Gordon Park, Main Beach. People have
really embraced the occasion over the years and are constantly asking on social media when it
will be back,” Ms Walsh said.
 
“It’s such a beautiful and glamorous event on the Gold Coast’s social calendar as it’s truly
unique and unlike any other hosted in the city. We can’t wait to see everyone dressed in white
attire and descend upon the secret location for a fun evening under the stars.”

There were more than 20,000 people on waitlists for previous Diner en Blanc events, showing just how popular this event has become in Australia. And now Gold Coast, it’s our turn. Dry clean your whites, text the group chat and get excited for the hottest event of autumn coming your way.
