About Le Dîner en Blanc - Philadelphia 
Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia debuted in the City of Brotherly Love on Thursday, August 23, 2012. Co-hosts Natanya DiBona and Kayli Moran worked with a six-person volunteer planning team from April to August to make the first event happen. 30 Table Leaders and on-site volunteers led 1,300 guests to the surprise location, Swann Fountain at Logan Circle. Seven events later, the event has grown to over 5,500 attendees, and will again be the largest event in the US this year. Over 150 volunteers were necessary to bring participants to the 2018 location, City Hall and Paine Plaza. Guests traveled by a variety of methods including by foot, subway and chartered buses to enjoy an evening of dinner, dancing and entertainment that included close to 100 performers. Year after year, the volunteer team is passionate about the experience they create for our guests and they look forward to delivering another great event in the summer of 2019.

About Le Dîner en Blanc
In June 2018, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris marked its 30th anniversary. A record 17,000 guests from Paris and around the world gathered at the Esplanade des Invalides to celebrate this historic moment. Launched in Paris in 1988 by François Pasquier and a handful of friends, Le Dîner en Blanc has become a worldwide epicurean phenomenon. Le Dîner en Blanc - Paris now attracts over 10,000 people each year. What was a “friends and word-of-mouth only” event has grown into an international sensation celebrated on six continents. While the technology behind the event may have changed over the years, the principles fueling this fantastic event have not: guests continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most beautiful public spaces. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Dîner en Blanc International is responsible for developing this secret posh picnic in close to 80 cities in 30 countries around the world. Each event is headed by passionate local organizers who fell in love with the concept and wanted to bring it to their city, giving this rendezvous a local flair.
