September 4th, 2017

Only one day of the year can be so special to gather hundreds of people dressed exclusively in white at a beautiful, secret location to enjoy an unforgettable evening. Le Dîner en Blanc, the most elegant Parisian dinner known for its head to toe white dressed code, arrives in Zagreb this September! This gourmet sensation will premiere on September 14, 2017 at a secret location, and an elegant white fairtale will mark the beginning of the autumn season and the return of life to the streets of Zagreb in the most beautiful way.

Le Dîner en Blanc was held for the first time in Paris in 1988 when François Pasquier, after returning from a long journey abroad, had the idea to gather his friends at a picnic. As the number of guests were greater than he had inticipated, he decided to organize the dinner in a public space and asked all who came to dress from head to toe in white to make it easier to recognize one another. Le Dîner en Blanc is held today in more than seventy cities around the world, including New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Mexico City, Toronto and Los Angeles, with over one hundred thousand visitors a year, and Zagreb has received exceptional recognition as the first city from this region to join the great Le Diner en Blanc family. Le Diner en Blanc is known as a fun spectacle that often includes performances by renowned musicians, exciting performance by acrobats and dancers and the inevitable magnificent fireworks that is talked about until the following meeting.

Tickets can be purchased at the prices of 250 kuna, or 300 kuna, which include transportation to the location. Organized buses will depart from different points around the city and drive visitors to the secret location where the picnic is to be held.
