The worldwide phenomenon of Diner En Blanc is back in Philadelphia for the 2nd straight year! An event that began in Paris, France 25 years ago and has been steadily growing throughout the world with 40 destinations, including numerous new locations in the United States.

The tradition requires participants to dress in all-white attire, bring their own food and refreshments and share in the experience in a beautiful destination of the city. What’s the most exciting part? The location is not disclosed to the public until just a few moments before the event begins. In Philadelphia, participants are given a landmark of the city to meet at, and then they are lead to the picnic by event staff.

The event takes place Thursday, August 22nd at 7pm and we’re eager to find out the secret site for this years activities! For an entertaining and thrilling night, attendees will party and mingle until nearly 11pm!
