Dîner en Blanc is known as the massive “chic picnic” where hundreds (or sometimes thousands) of guests dress elegantly in all white. It’s a sight to see for passersby. In 1988, Francois Pasquier got friends together and started this amusing tradition. There are a lot of rules to pulling off this unique event, now celebrated in more than 15,000 locations worldwide including Hawai‘i for the sixth year in a row.

For starters, you must receive an invitation to attend either as a Phase 1 return attendee, as a Phase 2 guest who is “sponsored” by a Phase 1 attendee or as a Phase 3 guest who is lucky enough to garner an invitation after Phase 1 and 2 guests have secured their invitations.
