Denverites are invited to a dinner party this summer, but I can’t tell you where. In fact, attendees won’t find out until they arrive at the secret location.

That’s part of the allure of Le Dîner en Blanc, which started as a small park party more than 30 years ago and has since grown to a global phenomenon. The event makes its Denver debut on June 4, when 1,500 people dressed in all white will be shuttled to a secret location for the classiest picnic they might ever attend.

According to an announcement Wednesday, the event will be held at “one of the city’s best-known public spaces.” Place your wagers now.

François Pasquier hosted the first Le Dîner en Blanc in Paris in 1988. According to the announcement, it was a way to reconnect with old friends, but also a way to meet new ones. He suggested everyone wear white so they could find each other in the public space where the event was held.

As the name suggests, guests at Le Diner en Blanc are expected to wear all white.

That’s how Le Dîner en Blanc acquired its name and dress code. Guests are expected to wear white from top to toe and bring with them everything they will need for dinner, including a portable table, chairs, plates and flatware, all of which should be white. Attendees are also expected to bring a meal or order one ahead of time they can pick up at the event. All alcohol must be ordered through the event. And don’t forget decor for your place setting (folks really go all out).

After dinner, there’s usually live music and dancing.
