Diner en Blanc: New York City’s Elegant Outdoor Party

Diner en Blanc is an annual elegant affair where more than 5,000 New Yorkers dress in all-white and dine outdoors to enjoy a summer’s evening. Guests bring their own picnic fare and tableware. The location is kept secret until just hours before the event. This year, it was held at Lincoln Center.
Guests dressed in their most fashion-forward garb, turning the arts institution into a scene for fun-filled revelry.
