Dîner en Blanc

Nearly a thousand revelers made the mystery-laden trip to The Beacon in Lake Nona on Thursday, October 13, 2016 for the first edition of Le Dîner en Blanc, a new pop-up dinner series and unique experiential ‘picnic’ event.

Arriving by bus with their tables, chairs, linens, gourmet picnic fare and bubbly libations, the hundreds of partygoers, all dressed in white, made quite a scene in Lake Nona. As the sun went down, sparklers lit up the sky in celebration of Le Dîner en Blanc highly-anticipated arrival in Orlando.

A global sensation, Le Dîner en Blanc launched in Paris nearly 30 years ago and has expanded into 70+ cities in more than 25 countries.

A date for the next Orlando Diner en Blanc has yet to be announced, however, joining the list at orlando.dinerenblanc.info/register ensures you'll stay in the loop. In the meantime, we hope you'll enjoy these pics we took at Thursday's momentous occasion.
