Foodies and culture fiends, it’s time to get excited! The secret dinner party phenomenon, Diner en Blanc is coming to Perth for the first time on Sunday, March 20—and we’ve got all the deets on how to (hopefully!) secure your ticket.
Diner en Blanc will see 1,500 diners descend upon a secret-squirrel location, which is revealed only hours before the event. To uphold Le Diner en Blanc tradition, guests are asked to wear head-to-toe white attire and bring their own portable tables, white chairs, white table linens, tableware, and gourmet meal (you can also pre-purchase a gourmet picnic).
Part of the excitement of Le Diner en Blanc is the mystery of the location and guessing where it will be held. Guests will only be given a rendezvous point when they register and purchase their tickets.
Le Diner en Blanc began in Paris in 1988 when Francois 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 recognise one another. More than 25 years later, over 10,000 Parisians participate each year. In 2009, the first ever export of Le Diner en Blanc took place in Montreal, followed by New York City in 2011. Diner en Blanc is now held in 60 cities in over 25 countries with more than 100,000 annual guests.
There were more than 20,000 people on the waitlist for the recent Sydney Diner en Blanc event, showing just how popular this event has become in Australia.
Tickets to this sophisticated, mysterious event are limited. Make sure you register pronto, or else your chance to attend one of the best evenings of 2016 will slip away!
