The City’s Largest Dinner Party Return to Los Angeles!

80 Cities Worldwide Host Annually the Legendary Pop-Up Culinary Event,

Los Angeles will celebrate its 6th Le Dîner en Blanc on Saturday, October 12, 2019

A leading summer event in Paris for the past 30 years, this elegant and secret affair is now well on its way to becoming THE foodie event of the year!  On Saturday, October 12th, Le Dîner en Blanc – Los Angeles will take place at a secret location. 

Participation to this unique event happens in three stages: Phase 1 is for members from the previous year; Phase 2 is for new members who are referred by Phase I attendees; and Phase 3 is for people who signed up on the waiting list.  To receive an invitation to this magical experience, people can sign-up now on the waiting list at register.dinerenblanc.com/losangeles/en/register.

Every summer in cities around the world, thousands of people dressed entirely in white descend on a landmark public space with everything they need for an elegant soirée in tow, including folding table and chairs, gourmet picnic, fine china, silverware, and tablecloth. Over the course of the evening, the guests eat and celebrate amid live music and dancing. Many spend weeks in advance planning their menus and the white ensemble.  The event offers the perfect occasion to express their unique fashion and design style; the often elaborate and creative outfits, fantastical hats, and decorative table settings are always a fabulous spectacle.

“There's nothing that compares to the unreal impact and escape of Le Dîner en Blanc – Los Angeles; fabulous food, fresh friendships, entertainment and iconic settings. I've attended year after year and my group has grown to devoted fans that embrace the rules and tack-on their own signature spin. Le Dîner en Blanc – Los Angeles is a true Tinseltown treat!” John Trosko – Group Leader

“I love the mystery, and when we arrive, it's the most magical party I've ever seen.” Tiffany Gardner – Group Leader
