This très chic Paris-import turned global phenomenon will arrive in Philadelphia for the first time this summer on Thursday, August 23, 2012. Where, you ask? Well, that has yet to be disclosed. This mysterious picnic event is one of the most sought-after secrets — part pop-up feast and part je ne sais quoi. Culinary and culture enthusiasts dressed in white will converge upon a secret locale for an unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic.
“Philadelphia is a city full of life with a passion and appreciation for food, tradition and culture which makes it a perfect backdrop for Dîner en Blanc,”said Natanya DiBona, Philadelphia Co-Chair. “The goal is to spend an extraordinary night — an unconventional picnic — and gather Philadelphians in a beautiful public space to reconnect friends and create new relationships.”
