Dîner en Blanc is just around the corner, here is your guide to get your spot

Ticket sales for the exclusive, secret location picnic event on June 23 are now available to the general public after a three-year absence, and they are selling fast. All you have to do is register your email for access to the ticketed event.

The annual event takes place at a secret location revealed on the event day. This year’s location is a completely new venue—different from other past events. All guests dress elegantly in white head-to-toe. This means no ivory, no off-white, and no beige. Originality is always encouraged, as long as it stays stylish and tasteful.

From their departure locations, guests travel to the secret event location with their own foldable table, chairs, picnic baskets and food in their all-white attire to enjoy the festivities and live entertainment. 

You can bring your own food or choose from a variety of Truffles Catering picnic boxes that will also be available to reserve when you purchase your ticket for the event.

Ticket sales close on Thursday, June 16., while eStore (food and wine) sales close this Monday, June 13.
