About this event

DINNER IN WHITE - OCTOBER 21 (2021)

Soirée en Blanc, or a dinner in white, is distinguished by the fact that the venue’s tables and guests are dressed fashionably in all white! The event is based on a 30-year tradition that began in Paris when a gentleman wanted to entertain a group of friends he hadn’t seen in a while. He selected a secret location and told them to meet at a predetermined place and to wear white so that they could find each other. The event has been replicated around the world in as many as 70 cities. In Paris, the annual event now draws 10,000!

This is how Yorktown's Soirée works...

Guests make reservations and pay a minimal entry fee. Guests bring their own picnic food, drinks or wine, white plates, flatware, white napkins, glasses, and white table decorations. Sister Cities Yorktown provides tables, chairs, and white table cloths. Be creative as table decorations are judged! For inspiration, go to www.international.dinerenblanc.info The location remains a secret until two (2) days in advance. That is part of the fun!

Organizer Sister Cities Yorktown

Organizer of Soirée En Blanc - presented by Sister Cities Yorktown

In 1990, Yorktown, Va., entered into a sister-city relationship with a tiny French Mediterranean village named Port-Vendres. The relationship was formalized on April 19 (U.S.) and July 13 (France) by the Yorktown Trustees with the mayor of Port-Vendres and other dignitaries. In 2010, Sister Cities Yorktown celebrated the 20th anniversary of the relationship with citizen exchanges between both countries. In December 2011, the York County Board of Supervisors formally recognized the relationship for York County.

Sister Cities Yorktown is chartered by Sister Cities International. We abide by that mission: “To promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation — one individual, one community at a time.”
