Event description

Description

It's free. Sign up now to join the waiting list for Phase III invitations.

Tickets to the event are $35.00 per person.

When you sign up today, you will be put on a waiting list to receive an invitation to Delano en Blanc during Phase III which begins March 10, 2018. If you want to be included in Phase I invitations, please consider becoming a Friend of Delano Park by December 1, 2017. Friends of Delano Park will receive an invitation during Phase I beginning January 10 and be able to submit the name of a friend to be invited during Phase II. This event will be capped at 1000 people. If there are spots left after Phase II, invitations to register will be opened to the public and those on a wait list on a first come, first served basis.

Modeled after the wildly popular international Diner en Blanc, this pop-up flash-gathering dinner party is a fundraiser for Delano Park. Start dreaming about the elegant, gourmet picnic you will create. Begin planning your all white ensemble. The rules are super strict: Guests must dress “elegantly” in all white—no ivory, off-white, or beige. Originality is always encouraged, as long as it stays stylish and tasteful.

After you have bought your tickets, you and your friends will be directed to a pick-up point where you will meet your Table Leader and be transported in a luxurious, air-conditioned motor coach to the secret event location. Once there, you'll set up your table and get ready to enjoy an evening of fabulous food and drink topped off with dancing to the amazing Craig Duncan band from Nashville, TN.

Phase I – January 10 – invitations to register for the event are extended to Friends of Delano Park. They may also submit one name to be invited during Phase II.
Phase II – February 10 – invitations to register for the event are extended to people whose names were submitted by Friends of Delano Park.
Phase III – March 10 – This event will be capped at 1000 people. If there are spots left after Phase II, invitations to register will be opened to the public and those on a wait list on a first come, first served basis.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Guests must be 21 or older to attend Delano en Blanc.

I have friends that I would like to sit with. Is there anyway we can have our tables together?

In January when you purchase your tickets, you will be able to choose a row online for your table. Just make sure that your friends register around the same time and pick the same row. Once you are at the pick-up site, you can sit together on the bus and place your tables together at the event. Your confirmation email will have your Row number.


I have really good friends who want to attend and they are not Friends of Delano. Can they register during Phase I?

Friends of Delano Park was formed with a mission to preserve, improve, promote, and maintain historic Delano Park in partnership with the City of Decatur. Over the past 17 years this public-private partnership made possible a comeback decade of building for a cherished public space in the heart of our city. The money donated by Friends of Delano has provided for the restoration and much of the maintenance of our park. Anyone making a contribution per Delano Park guidelines before December 1, 2017 will be added to the Friends of Delano list and will receive a invitation to register during Phase I.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

When you buy your ticket in January, you will receive directions to an appointed pick-up place in Decatur. You will be met by your Table Leader and will board an air-conditioned motor coach to be transported to the secret event location. At the conclusion of the evening, you will re-board the motor coach and be transported back to your pick-up point.

What can I bring into the event?
