2013 Dîner en Blanc Chicago Announced


Celebrating its 25th anniversary, and now spanning over 40 cities across 5 continents, Dîner en Blanc (DeB) returns to Chicago for an unforgettable summer finale on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 6:30pm. One of the most sought after “secret” events, DeB Chicago allows hundreds of participants to join together as a community to celebrate an extraordinary evening in an outdoor Chicago venue, while enjoying friends, food, wine, culture, music and fashion.

Staying true to Dîner en Blanc’s original pop-up picnic 25 years ago, all participants in Chicago are asked to wear all white and bring the makings of an elegant picnic dinner with them - chairs, white linens, food and drink. Dîner en Blanc does serve alcohol and therefore all attendees must be 21 years old to participate.
For busy Chicagoans, the DeB Chicago team is busy preparing options for pre-made picnic baskets with wine pairings that may be purchased online prior to the event. Details will be posted on our website and all social media shortly.
