Save the date for the city’s largest dinner party when it returns to Brisbane on 4 November 2017 for its sixth edition.
Last year, 3,000 guests were transported from a mysterious meeting place to the secret location, revealed on the night as Brisbane’s beautiful botanic gardens.
Originally 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. Guests continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most beautiful public spaces.
