Picnique en Blanc & Diner en Blanc

Two fun events are planned in September that will allow us to enjoy French culture in novel outdoor settings. Please save Saturday, September 29th for the Alliance Francaise sponsored Picnique en Blanc at the Cincinnati Tennis Club, where we will enjoy playing tennis or petanque, en blanc of course, followed with a pot luck picnic and music on the historic clubhouse porch.
The following is an opportunity for us to join in an extraordinary city wide event, Cincinnati’s first DIner en Blanc on September 15th.  Diner en Blanc originated in Paris in 1988.  You will really want to click on the link provided to see the videos of these now world wide events. There’s also a link to Diner en Blanc’s Facebook page for more info.


The organizers have graciously offered to seat us together and set aside a bus designated for our members. So please identify yourself as an AF affiliate when you respond to this email for an evite or any questions, to Bill at The executive-type bus holds 23 couples, so it could be great fun for a group of us to attend together.Diner en Blanc …….. a fun and elegant ‘pop up picnic’ held at a different ‘secret’ location each year not disclosed until the last minute. The original Diner en Blanc was held in Paris in 1988 and Montreal for the past four years, and is now held in many other major cities including London, Berlin, Sydney, Quebec, New York City, Boston, etc. It’s been tremendously successful; 10,000 people attend the Paris event and more than 4,000 attend Montreal.The inaugural Cincinnati Diner en Blanc will be held on Sept. 15 and we’re expecting about 1,000 guests from many different neighborhoods, ages and friendship groups. Guests virtually bring everything except the entertainment (jazz band and French singers during dinner, and a DJ after dinner). Just people getting together over good food. The price is $26.00 per person plus a one-time $5.00 Diner en Blanc membership fee covering two people.
There’s a great video of the Montreal Diner en Blanc event on YouTube: Diner en Blanc.
