The avant-garde phenomenon Le Dîner en Blanc returns to Atlanta for the third consecutive year on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Registration has officially closed for the 2016 edition, as the event sold out within minutes of opening registration to the public. Over 2,000 attendees have received their tickets and will take part in the unique event to dine and celebrate at a new, undisclosed location in Atlanta.
To preserve spontaneity and secrecy, the elegant pop-up picnic takes over landmarks around the city, whose locations are not revealed until minutes before the feast. Close to 1,000 guests attended the inaugural event held in the Millennium Gate Museum at Atlantic Station and nearly 2,000 guests attended the second edition on Peachtree Street in front of the iconic Fox Theatre.
Launched in Paris nearly 30 years ago, the original essence of Le Dîner en Blanc remains: friendship, elegance and gallantry. While the technology behind the event may have changed over the years, the principles fueling this fantastic event have not: guests donned in white 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.
This year’s official wine sponsor of the 2016 Dîner en Blanc series is Apothic Wine, and Lanson Champagne is proud to be the official champagne sponsor of Dîner en Blanc Atlanta 2016.
