THANK YOU FRIENDS!

Posted by Josée Kleinbaum on June 19, 2018 | 1 comment

Chers amis, it is with great emotion and gratitude that we are writing to thank you for having joined us in celebrating the 30th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris. Initially the idea of bringing together Parisians and foreigners for this anniversary was met with concern and enthusiasm on both the French side and the international community. Both organisations have their particularities so certain adaptations were necessary to carry out this ambitious project.

Most viewed questions

Let’s start with the basics… What is Le Dîner en Blanc?

Le Dîner en Blanc is a much-anticipated annual event, the location of which is only revealed at the very last minute. Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.

What makes Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris different from all other Le Dîner en Blanc events?

Since its creation, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris has been defined as an unusual "gathering" and not a formatted "event". First, it does not receive any official authorization, except for the good will of the authorities. This tolerance is the result of 29 years of history, an impeccable organization, a respect for host sites, a show for thousands of passers-by, and participants as elegant as they are disciplined. Furthermore, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris is free for all Parisians who manage to receive an invitation. For this, one needs to receive an invitation from a member of the organization. There has never been a waiting list to register for Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris, with this year’s international community being the exception!

I have already participated in a Le Dîner en Blanc in my city. Should I expect a similar process?

Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris sets itself apart from other international events in numerous respects. Participation in the Parisian edition offers a very different experience. For the international community, which is accustomed to a more structured organization, it is important put yourself in a positive frame of mind, one that will embrace “imperfections” and, in all likelihood, spontaneity! But hey, aren’t these amusing and unexpected situations the ones that provide some of the most beautiful memories over time?

Is there a risk of being bothered by the authorities while participating in Le Diner en Blanc de Paris?

In its 29 years of history, the authorities have never interfered with this gathering. The first editions certainly raised questions, even some concerns. However, time and the disciplined organization of the 29 previous editions have helped it garner the international reputation it is known for today.

What are the key rules of the event?

Le Dîner en Blanc, and even more so the Paris event—which takes place without authorization—requires from the participants an exemplary citizenship and discipline. Here are the main rules:

● Guests commit to attend, rain or shine, no matter the circumstance.

● Exude Elegance … in white. Originality is encouraged, as long as it remains elegant and tasteful.

● Bring your own table, chairs, and picnic basket.

● Follow the Volunteer Leader’s instructions.

● Arrive and leave with your Leader. Nobody arrives at the site on their own.

● Drink responsibly. Champagne or wine only. No spirits or beer.

● Clean up: Take all your garbage with you and clean the area around your table.

If you do not comply with any of these rules, you will no longer be able to register for future Dîner en Blanc events.

May I book my flight and hotel now?

It is preferable that you buy your flight before registering for Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris. Registration is non-refundable, and renders your attendance, as well as your guest’s, mandatory.

Do you have special partnerships/rates with hotels or airlines?

Participants are coming from all over the world, so it was not possible to put together offers for everyone. Flight reservations and accommodations are therefore the responsibility of each participant. To facilitate searching for flights and hotels, please use the multi-search engine available on our website: https://travel.dinerenblanc.com Or write our partner Flight Centre, who will take care of your booking needs: dinerenblancparis2018@flightcentre.ca

Should I travel with my equipment (table, chairs, etc.)?

In order to facilitate logistics for foreign participants, tables, chairs, picnic baskets, champagne, wine, etc. will soon be available via the Le Dîner en Blanc website. Please note that there will be no on-site distribution the evening of the event. You must pick up your order on the Saturday before the event at a central location in Paris. Please make sure to consider this in planning your trip.
