Diner en Blanc is a worldwide event, spanning six continents, in which people flash-gather in a public space and set up a temporary, chic dining area. The principles of the event are simply that guests dress formally in white; and that they enjoy quality food, wine, and good company. Only a select number of participants who have previously been coopted are made privy to the location the day of the dinner and converge to an iconic location.
Established nearly 30 years ago, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris has evolved over the years, becoming a “très chic” tradition that now attracts over 10,000 people annually in the French Capital’s most prestigious sites, with 15,000 guests attending the 25th anniversary in 2013.
Today, Dîner en Blanc is held in over 70 cities in 25 countries and has gained well over 100,000 new friends worldwide. Each event is headed by passionate local organizers who fell in love with the concept and who wanted to bring it to their city, adding their own local flair while respecting the event’s core values.
Zagreb’s Dîner en Blanc is organised by Joe Basic, Tihana Bervicato, Ivan Gotovac, Branimir Karacic and Katrina Niksic.
