Le Dîner en Blanc - August Calendar 2017!

August is definitely the hottest month for Le Dîner en Blanc events: a dozen Dîners will take place over 3 continents and 5 different countries! The month will have some Grand Premieres like in Richmond, Virginia in the United States, Bucharest, Romania and Busan, South Korea and some well-established traditions such as the 9th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Montreal!

August 3, 2017
The celebrations begin in Quebec City with the 7th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Québec! With an almost sold-out event - only a few places were still available at the time of writing this - it promises to be another memorable, grand event. Last year, 2,000 guests attended at Manoir Montmorency, located near the famous Eponym Falls. What have the Hosts concocted for this year?  Where will it be? All will be revealed soon!

Making its grand Premiere in Richmond, Virginia: Le Dîner en Blanc - Richmond!  Located on the East Coast of the United States, the capital of Virginia has many historical places such as The Capitol of the Virginia State, the Hollywood Graveyard (where numerous presidents are buried), and Monument Avenue where many beautiful and historic sculptures stand. Its large spaces and rich history make Richmond an ideal city to welcome Le Dîner en Blanc! The hosting team, Christine Wansleben, Ayana Obika and Enjoli Moon, have been hard at work for months now to see to the many details to make this evening magical. We wish them good luck with their inaugural sold-out event!

August 17, 2017 - an En Blanc soirée for 3 cities!

The Montreal edition is the second oldest after the original one in Paris! This 9th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Montreal is proof that the event has become a true summer tradition for the people of Montreal and its surroundings. This year again, the bar is high for the organizers. Last year’s event was a perfect night in the heart of Montreal on McGill College Avenue. To use the words of Aymeric Pasquier: ‘good weather, a majestic avenue, intoxicating music and, a well-managed organization with motivated volunteers and happy guests’ made for another unforgettable event. A few places are still available, click on


The second event of the night takes place in the Canadian metropolis. At the helm since its inaugural edition, hosts Jessica Tan, Jordan Fogle and Rob Drynan are seeing to every detail to make this 6th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Toronto another success. Last year’s anniversary edition gathered more than 2,500 guests to the famous Canary District. Where will the festivities be this year? The size of the city makes for a difficult riddle.  If you want to participate in this next edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Toronto, visit and click on Register.

Simultaneously, on the U.S. side of the boarder, it will be the 6th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Philadelphia! Every year this event is one of the most anticipated. The proof is that every year, its attendance grows and sells out fast!  More than 5,000 guests will gather at a secret location, revealed only minutes before the start of the event. With its 5th anniversary edition of last year celebrated on the steps of the well-known and iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art, the hosting team is once again ready to take up the challenge to surprise and charm their guests.

The 7th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - New York is confirmed!  Last year’s event gathered 5 000 guests by the Hudson River who enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a breathtaking view of the Statue of Liberty. Where will the 2017 edition be? The organizing team is tight lips… For a chance to attend, sign up to the waiting list now at


August 24, 2017 - Another full night of En Blanc: 4 events!

First a big first: the Romanian capital welcomes for the first time Le Dîner en Blanc - Bucharest. Indeed, the city offers a perfect setting to host Le Dîner en Blanc: monumental avenues, beautiful gardens, amazing parks and alleys, so many possibilities of secret places… Furthermore, Bucharest is nicknamed “the Paris of the Balkans” and you may be surprised to learn that there is a replica of the Arc de Triomphe downtown! Welcome to Bucharest and to the new hosting team (Register here:! 


The smallest municipality to be part of Le Dîner en Blanc adventure, Le Dîner en Blanc - Edmundston celebrates its 5th anniversary! The honour of its success is entirely due to its dedicated hosts, its volunteers and guests who are passionate about the event. Rumor has it that summer holidays are scheduled according to this annual rendez-vous. Some 1,000 guests are expected to attend the 5th edition. Some spaces remain, so if you are in the area, visit and click on Register.

The hosts of Le Dîner en Blanc - Vancouver are innovating for their 6th edition. The evening will take place in not one but two secret places! The idea came because of last year’s anniversary edition record 6,000 guests and the fact that public spaces that can accommodate as many diners are limited.  Also, they want to return to the source by offering a more intimate event, thus centering back to family and friends, as well as the elegance of the original concept. The innovation seems to charm because tickets are selling fast. To participate, visit and click Register. 

It’s the 6th edition also for Le Dîner en Blanc - Chicago as well! This year promises to be another resounding success: guests are expected in one of the most mythical places of the “Windy City” and of course it will be kept secret until the last minute. The hosts - Roger Hobby, James Wild, Lauren Haras, Annette Dalloo and Jennifer Jones – will meet up with their guests on August 24th to elegantly celebrate the core values of Le Dîner en Blanc: friendship, sharing and the love of their city. 

August 25, 2017
Le Dîner en Blanc de Vilnius is back for a 4th edition.  The inaugural edition took place in front of the Vilnius Town Hall and gathered 600 guests. This year, 1,000 guests are expected at a secret location. The historical centre of Vilnius is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Ste, including the embassy district with its typical North European façades, often colourful and decorated with sculptures. Hosts Valda Lukosiute and Dovile Simkute Butkiene are doing their utmost to amaze their guests. Places are still available at, click on ‘Registruotis’.

A second event in South Korea but a very first edition for Busan.
