Le Dîner en Blanc in Jersey City – August 25

Organizers of Jersey City’s Le Dîner en Blanc have announced a date for the most popular Parisian inspired pop-up dinner in the city — August 25, 2022.

Le Dîner en Blanc began in Paris in 1988 when François Pasquier returned from a trip abroad and decided to host a picnic for friends. As the guest list grew, Pasquier decided to move the picnic to a public space and asked guests to wear all white so that friends could find the picnic.

The dinner was such a success that the friends decided to keep hosting the annual picnic, which grew so popular that it became an international phenomenon.
