ALL IS SET FOR LE DÎNER EN BLANC THIS NOVEMBER
Nairobi will be the host Le Dîner en Blanc on November 25, currently in its third edition, the annual secret affair, promises another unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic, as it takes over an undisclosed public space whose location is only revealed minutes prior to the commencement of the event.
Over 450 foodies, fashion and cultural enthusiasts have attended the event in the past and 600 are expected this year.
“Le Dîner en Blanc – Nairobi is truly a magical event that brings people of all colors, races, tribes, backgrounds together for the chicest picnic ever! This year’s theme is #StrongerTogether,” said LeAnne Peris.
Bystanders will witness groups of guests all dressed in white gathering at specific rallying points all across the city. Guided by Dîner en Blanc volunteers, these groups will then converge on one of the Nairobi’s most beautiful setting, travelling by chartered bus. Every guest brings their own gourmet feast, and table decor. Over the course of the evening, they will eat and celebrate amid music, entertainment and dancing.
The evening is filled with visually breathtaking moments including the waving of a cloth napkin to mark the beginning of the dinner and the lighting of sparklers to let guests know they are now free to mingle and dance. When at the end of the evening the trumpet sounds, guests pack up all of their belongings, pick up all their litter and head back into the night, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
Launched in Paris in 1988 by François Pasquier and a handful of friends, Le Dîner en Blanc has become a worldwide epicurean phenomenon. Le Dîner en Blanc – Paris now attracts over 10,000 people each year. The event has grown into an international sensation celebrated on six continents.
