Diner en Blanc returns to Los Angeles in November

For the third time, Los Angeles hosts Le Dîner en Blanc.  On November 4, the annual secret affair, promises another unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic, as it takes over an undisclosed public space whose location is only revealed minutes prior to the commencement of the event. This year, over 2000 foodies, fashion and cultural enthusiasts are expected to attend.
“We are so excited to be back in Los Angeles, a city that truly revels in beauty, one of a kind epicurean events and top tier culinary experiences,” said Annette Dalloo, Los Angeles director of Diner en Blanc. “Angelenos will not be disappointed by this year’s top secret location as the backdrop for an evening filled with music, excitement and an amazing celebrity chef.”
Bystanders will witness groups of guests all dressed in white gathering at specific rallying points all across the city. Guided by Dîner en Blanc volunteers, these groups will then converge on one of the Los Angeles’s most beautiful setting, travelling by foot/bus/public transportation. Every guest brings their own gourmet feast, table, chairs and table setting. Over the course of the evening, they will eat and celebrate amid music, entertainment and dancing.
The evening is filled with visually breathtaking moments including the waving of a cloth napkin to mark the beginning of the dinner and the lighting of sparklers to let guests know they are now free to mingle and dance. When at the end of the evening the trumpet sounds, guests pack up all of their belongings, pick up all their litter and head back into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
