If you come across thousands of people dressed head to toe in white Saturday evening, don’t be alarmed — it’s just Dîner en Blanc.
François Pasquier founded the “dinner in white” picnic party in Paris 25 years ago as a means for him to reconnect with his friends. He made sure his picnicking guests wore white so they’d be able to spot each other
Dîner en Blanc arrived in Cincinnati last September because local couple Kate and Bill Baumann had read a 2011 New York Times article on how NYC was going to be the first U.S. location to host the event and would use the Paris Dîner as their template.
Dîner en Blanc is sold-out but you can find info for next year’s event at cincinnati.dinerenblanc.info.
