Le Dîner en Blanc - Philadelphia's Diner en Blanc debuted on Thursday, August 23, 2012. When co-hosted by Natanya DiBona and Kayli Moran, working with just six volunteers pulled off the first event in Philly.
The event has grown to over 5,500 attendees in the last nine years to become one of Philly's most significant and sought-after culinary events. Year after year, the volunteer team has worked hard to create a one-of-a-kind experience and looks forward to delivering another great event this year.
Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia will return for its ninth year in the City of Brotherly Love and focus on the French-inspired traditions as this year's theme. Preparations are currently underway for this year's event, and the team has announced the event will take place on August 12, 2021. As in previous years, the location remains a secret until guests are taken to the event's site by group leaders.
To ease the return of this trendy event, Le Dîner en Blanc in Philadelphia will return at half capacity for 2021 and follow all CDC and Philadelphia Department of Public Health guidelines.
After a break last year due to the global pandemic, the dinner event will return with few changes to the format. Guests will still meet at various departure points throughout the city, follow their Table Leader to the Secret Location, set up tables and dine next to one another in a public space.
The evening's entertainment will also include, as in years before roaming musicians and performers, two bands- Hot Club Philly and Ernest Stuart Band- a drumline, DJ, and dancing.
