Most viewed questions

Will the event be cancelled or postponed in case of rain?

Le Dîner en Blanc is a rain or shine event. Each guests’ presence is necessary and mandatory, regardless of the weather. In case of rain, guests must remember to bring a white or transparent raincoat, poncho and/or umbrella. However, if public safety becomes an issue due to severe weather (ex. thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornados…), the local Hosts may decide to cancel or postpone the event.

I was invited by a member to attend the last Dîner en Blanc. Will I automatically be invited back this year?

Unfortunately, you will not automatically receive an invitation to this year’s event. The current online system allows for one “registered member” and one “invited guest” to be seated at each table, making registered members the only ones to be automatically re-invited. In the near future, all Dîner en Blanc participants will become members, and both people will be automatically re-invited the following year. Until we make this change, you may return this year with the same person, get invited/sponsored by another member, or register to the waiting list to become a member yourself.

Is it possible to organize a Dîner en Blanc in my city?

Dîner en Blanc International has established an exclusive service to facilitate the organization and management of Dîner en Blanc events around the world. This turnkey service enables interested local teams to produce Dîner en Blanc in their own city, while connecting to the international network. For more information, write to info@dinerenblanc.info.

What is the selection process for hosting a Dîner en Blanc event in my city?

To apply to host a Diner en Blanc event, please follow the link to Le Dîner en Blanc - Application Form. We will review your application, and if your team is qualified, we will schedule a conference call to continue the application process and give you more information regarding the organization of a Dîner en Blanc event. Please take note that we will only consider applications if all requested information has been submitted.

What is the typical time frame for organizing a Dîner en Blanc event?

Organizing a large-scale event like Dîner en Blanc requires a great deal of commitment and preparation. We generally require a minimum of 6 months to help you organize and execute your event.

Are there any costs associated with becoming an official host of a Dîner en Blanc event?

Dîner en Blanc International does not charge local hosts to become part of the network, nor does it charge for trademark use. Local hosts must understand, however, that by undertaking this project, they accept the responsibilities associated with hosting a large-scale event and commit to respecting the guidelines and specifications intended to preserve the spirit and the values of Le Dîner en Blanc.

What is the typical cost to attend this event?

In order to cover the production costs of a Dîner en Blanc event, each guest will pay an average of $30 USD to the local host organization as participation fee, which covers the inherent costs of organizing the event (transportation, security, insurance, etc.). At the time of registration, guests also pay an annual $8 USD fee to Dîner en Blanc International. This annual fee ensures that registered members have the priority of being automatically re-invited to the following year’s event; they can also sponsor a friend to attend the event and join the Dîner en Blanc International network.

What are the membership and transaction fees for?

Membership and transaction fees are used to cover the inherent costs of training, support and technological services to all the organizers around the world, to enable them to organize their own event, as offered by Dîner en Blanc International. These services allow us to preserve and convey the concept’s values, to sustain our corporate standards by regrouping them within a single network and, to develop technical tools. The membership offers members a number of online services that will grow in the coming years. Dîner en Blanc International is working on updating its platforms (release planned for 2016) so that all participants of a Dîner en Blanc event become members. In addition, this annual fee will allow members to register for as many Dîner en Blanc events in the world as they wish.
