Philadelphia, PA - This year, the event was held in Logan Square, Philadelphia. Apothic Wines is the official wine sponsor of the US Diner en Blanc series. Participants had to wear white to attend the event and bring their own food. The event was a lively night filled with live music, dancers, performers, and more.
This year's event marks its tenth year. It is now known as the premier culinary event in the United States. Its unique format brings together people from all walks of life to celebrate the culinary arts, unity, and friendship in an unexpected public space. The Diner en Blanc Philadelphia organizers also brought the event to Atlantic City, just 60 miles away, earlier this year.
In 2012, Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia organizers Natanya DiBona and Kayli Moran chose Logan Square as their first-ever location for the Parisian pop-up. Logan Square provides a rich history, culture, and a spectacular backdrop for the event. That’s why ten years later, the organizers felt it was only right to celebrate in the location that started it all, this time taking over a much larger footprint.
"We are elated to celebrate ten years of Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia at Logan Square! As many may know, this was the location for the very first Le Dîner en Blanc in 2012, so we thought it was only right to bring the event back ten years later. Everything from the food and entertainment to the traditions and location has served nothing but nostalgia on this beautiful summer night.” - Natanya DiBona, Co-Host of Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia.
Le Dîner En Blanc’s entertainment schedule was nothing short of amazing, as the sounds of talented artists filled Logan Square. Originaire, Stephen Mitnaul, and David Puryear kicked off the evening with various touring entertainers. The MadBeatz drumline also accompanied them.
Many of the attendees' favorite performers from previous years were on the lineup last night, including the three bands that played on the main stage: The Hot Club of Philadelphia, a Gypsy Jazz quartet that performed at the inaugural Le Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia event in 2012; Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret who took the stage at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in 2015; and the Ernest Stuart Band, that performed at the event in Rittenhouse Square last summer. This year, Snack Time Philly members joined Ernest and his band for special performances.
