For the very first time in history, Dîner en Blanc arrives in Singapore after many years of holding in cities all around the world such as Paris, Lyon, Amsterdam, Munich, Zürich, Berlin, Montreal and New York. For the very first time in Asia, guests will be able to dine with the beautiful view of the nightscape of Singapore at an undisclosed location which will only be made known to those who have register for Dîner en Blanc Singapore 2012.
In a nutshell, Dîner en Blanc is known as The White Dinner, the famously exclusive pop-up picnic that began in Paris 24 years ago. Thousand of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.
Over the course of an evening, the diners enhance the function and value of their city’s public space by participating in the unexpected. Beyond the spectacle and refined elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by a love of beauty and good taste.
Le Dîner en Blanc recalls the elegance and glamor of court society, and diners engage one another knowing they are taking part in a truly magical event.

At the end of every Dîner en Blanc, there will be a finale where all diners will light their sparklers and party away. ”I Gotta Feeling” by Black Eyed Peaswas last year’s theme song. For Dîner en Blanc Singapore 2012, it will be “We Are Young” by Fueled By Ramen ft. Janelle Monáe will be the final song.
