Dîner en Blanc Chicago 2017 stuns the French and wows the original founder!

Thanks to you, Chicago, Dîner en Blanc Chicago 2017 was a resounding success! With nearly 3700 guests joining us at the lawn at the Theater on the Lake, Chicago once again showed how much we have come to love this French import and embrace it as our own. Amongst our very special guests that night we had both the incoming and outgoing French Consul generals and the founder and creator of our event, François Pasquier and his family. Our French Consulate guests marvelled at how well the event went and how much fun all of the guests were having, while François Pasquier, taking time between photos with guests and chatting with the press, told our hosts that this may be the best Dîner en Blanc he has ever attended. Congratulations, Chicago. We've impressed the French and especially the founder and his whole family!

We have released many of our photos on social media already so be sure to tag yourselves right here:

We were also honored to be featured on ABC news, WGN, The Chicagoist, The Huffington Post, Crain's dining blog, Rolling Out, Chicago Now and so many more media outlets.

Keep an eye on our social media for when we release the official video, and keep wondering... where will we be next year?

A la prochaine!
