Le Diner en Blanc
Returns to Long Island on August 24, 2023!
Long Island, NY – After a couple of years on hiatus for the reasons we all know but shall not mention, Le Diner en Blanc returns to Long Island for its 4th edition on Thursday, August 24, 2023. As always, the venue will remain secret until the last minute.
To be part of the unique experience, visit longisland.dinerenblanc.com and click on the Register tab to sign up for Phase 3.
Le Diner en Blanc is an event that transports us into another world. The sea of people all adorned in white creates images that are instantly ‘Instagram-able’. Meeting new people or reuniting with longtime friends. Getting all dressed up to attend a dinner à la française where conversation and champagne are essential.
Donyshia Boston-Hill, host of Le Diner en Blanc in Long Island, is glad that Le Diner en Blanc is returning to the city: “This chic and elegant affair seems perfect to encourage people to shop local and bring to the event their local flavour. This year, the number of participants will be limited, so we strongly invite the participants to forget to register early, not to wait until the last moment.”
To maintain the uniqueness of Le Diner en Blanc every guest has its part to play and observes certain requirements such as:
Dress code: head-to-toe in white only. Elegance and Originality are key!
Table setting: all white!
French-influenced event only wine and/or Champagne are served.
As per New York State alcohol laws/regulations, guests cannot bring their own alcohol. Guests wishing to enjoy some wine or Champagne, must reserve online through Le Diner en Blanc’s e-store. However, guests are welcome to bring their own non-alcoholic beverages.
To ensure that the location secret is kept undisclosed until last minute, guests meet at assigned departure location and are escorted by a Diner en Blanc volunteer.
So, the event location is left as clean as when guests arrived, they are required to leave with all their belongings, leftovers, and litter.
Guests are to bring
A table, two white chairs, white tablecloth.
A picnic basket comprising fine food and proper stemware and white dinnerware.
A catered picnic basket option, which can be picked up on site, will be available for those who do not wish to pack their own. Guests wishing to do so must reserve online through Le Diner en Blanc’s e-store.
Le Diner en Blanc – Long Island gratefully acknowledges Resorts World as an official local partner of the 2023 edition of Le Diner en Blanc.
