Bon vivants and gourmands rejoice! The 9th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc in Sydney will take place on Saturday 26 February 2022 at a new secret location. This elegant and secret affair has become THE social gathering of the year!

Le Dîner en Blanc is an event that transports guests into another world. The sea of ​​people all adorned in white creates images that are instantly ‘Instagram-able’. The event is an opportunity to meet new people or reunite with long-time friends – dearly missed during lockdown. And getting dressed up in white to attend a dinner à la Française, where conversation and champagne flow, is just part of the magic of this exclusive event.

In the past, Le Dîner en Blanc Sydney has been staged at iconic locations such as Bondi Beach, Centennial Parklands, and the Sydney Opera House forecourt.

Each year, Sydneysiders eagerly await the announcement of the event, poised to encircle the date on their social calendar. To be part of this amazing night under the stars, people can sign up now at register.dinerenblanc.com/sydney.

Antoine Bessis, host of Le Dîner en Blanc in Sydney, is delighted that the event is returning to the city, and that this year event will help the local economy: “This chic and elegant affair seems perfect to encourage people to shop local and bring to the event their neighbourhood delicacies. This year, the number of participants will be limited, so we strongly recommend registering early and not to wait until the last moment. “

To maintain the uniqueness of Le Dîner en Blanc as well as staying true to tradition, guests must observe certain requirements and follow a few key rules:

  • Once confirmed, each guest’s participation becomes mandatory, regardless of weather conditions.  This is a rain or shine event.

  • To ensure that the location secret is kept undisclosed until last minute, guests meet at the assigned departure location and are escorted by a Dîner en Blanc volunteer.
  • In order to leave the event location as clean as when they arrived, guests are required to leave with all their belongings, leftovers and litter.
