Indianapolis Dîner en Blanc is Back!

Hopefully, you’ve followed our Mon Amie Events blog for any time. In that case, you surely remember us sharing about the iconic Indianapolis Dîner en Blanc on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

Begun in Paris in 1988, Dîner en Blanc is now in close to 80 cities and 30 countries worldwide. Unfortunately, much like millions of other events, Dîner en Blanc had to take a year off in 2020.

However, after taking the year off, Dîner en Blanc in Indianapolis came back in a big way. The evening was super fun – and filled with the same incredible joie de vivre for which this worldwide phenomenon is known.

This was our third Dîner en Blanc and in the spirit of the first Parisian picnic created by François Pasquier, we solicited everyone’s participation to safely set up and break down their own tables. Everything they needed was packaged neatly in totes including trash bags to limit handling by our volunteers.

Indianapolis Destination Unknown

The White Street Bridge and White River, the location of the 2021 Indianapolis Diner en Blanc

As always, guests dressed to the nines headed to their initial meeting point to be transported to the location yet to be disclosed.

The Washington Street Bridge over the White River at White River State Park was picture perfect with large grassy areas, north and south views of the White River, and unmatched views of downtown Indianapolis!
