Dîner en Blanc announced today that the 2012 “Party of the Year” will return to Philadelphia this summer! The wait list officially opened and from Twitter reports, it already has nearly 1,500 people that signed up for another evening of magic, food, fun and fashion. Memorial Day isn’t even here, and we’ve already got our outfit pressed and ready to go. Who’s excited!?
Organizers of the pop-up picnic in white will announce the official date in mid-to-late May. In anticipation, the wait list is now open at philadelphia.dinerenblanc.info. As of 8:30 PM, nearly 1,500 people have already flooded the website and added their names to receive an official invitation. The wait list does not guarantee a spot to Dîner Blanc Philadelphia. It does ensure that wait list members will be notified when slots for the event go on sale in early summer.
Last year, 1,300 people attended the debut of Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia, with 650 slots sold (which included registration for two people) and 4,000 people on the wait list. The event went on to be called Philadelphia’s “Party of the Year” — and won a Pepperpot
Public Relations Award from the Public Relations Society of America, Philadelphia Chapter.
The official event date for the 2013 Diner en Blanc will be announced later in May, along with details of a special preview party on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at Williams-Sonoma at the Bellevue Hyatt. We know we’ll be watching for info and be the first in line to preview the pop-up fun! Join us.. stay tuned for Diner en Blanc reports all summer long!
