Le Dîner en Blanc was brought to Philadelphia by co-hosts Natanya DiBona and Kayli Moran. Each year they coordinate the event with a team of volunteers which this year will top 160 (including the annual planning team, table leaders and on-site event support).
Past surprise locations for Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia have included 2012’s Logan Circle, 2013’s JFK Bridge, 2014’s Avenue of the Arts and 2015’s The Navy Yards, Marine Parade Grounds. The event has grown from 1,200 in 2012, to 2,550 in 2013, to 3,500 in 2014, 4,500 in 2015 and 5,000 in 2016. For 2017, DiBona and Moran have big plans to host the largest event of its kind in the United States with at least 5,200 guests.
While Le Dîner en Blanc - Philadelphia has been the recipient of “best foodie event” and “best pop-up” awards from publications such as Philadelphia Magazine and Main Line Today, the event’s greatest distinction is having the highest guest return rate of all the Dîner en Blanc events in the United States. Year after year, the volunteer team is passionate about the experience they create for our guests and they look forward to delivering another great event in the summer of 2017.
