MELBOURNE | Dîner En Blanc is returning to Melbourne for a third year in 2017, and with it, guests can expect another evening of fun while embracing this Parisian concept. If you’ve not heard of Dîner En Blanc before, here’s the deal. An expected 2,500 ticket holders will meet at various ‘rallying points’ across Melbourne, dressed in all white, they’ll then be led to a specific location, which will only be revealed minutes before the event begins.
Every guest brings their own gourmet feast, table, chairs and table setting. Over the course of the evening, there will be music, entertainment and dancing to accompany the feast. The feast begins with thousands of cloths being waved in the air and later the lighting of sparklers to let guests know they are free to mingle and dance. When at the end of the evening the trumpet sounds, guests pack up all of their belongings and head back into the night, leaving behind no sign of what has just passed. Think of it as one giant, slightly ridiculous yet elegant, fun picnic.
