Le Dîner en Blanc

The Gold Coast has another major event on the way with the world-famous phenomenon, Le Dîner en Blanc, which will be returning on Saturday 19 March. The exclusive alfresco event which launched in Paris in 1988 and on the Gold Coast in 2017, will see 1,200 people come together to share a glamorous picnic meal at a top-secret location. With international travelling being mostly on hold for this year, Le Dîner en Blanc will send those attending on an uplifting holiday within the city, making you feel like you are on vacation in the south of France.

Le Dîner en Blanc is an event that, even by staying home, transports you into another world. The sea of people all adorned in white creates images that are instantly ‘Instagram-able’. Meeting new people or reuniting with long-time friends.  Getting all dressed up to attend a dinner à la française where conversation and champagne are essential. Le Dîner en Blanc – Gold Coast will keep to its tradition and rules: an elegant all-white dress code, bring your own all-white table setting and a picnic hamper of fine food and proper glassware, and not revealing the location until the day of the event.

The event has been highly anticipated with already thousands of people from the Gold Coast and around Australia who have registered to the waitlist. Participation to this unique event will happen in three stages: Phase 1 is for members who attended the last edition (in 2018); Phase 2 for new members referred from Phase 1; and Phase 3 is for people who signed up on the waiting list.
