Dinner en Blanc et Noir FAQs

dinner en blanc et noir invitation

Is party size limited this year?
Nope!  Your party can have as many persons as are comfortable sitting at a table together.

Will my party have its own table?
Yes.  And like last year’s event, it will be socially spaced from neighboring tables due to pandemic concerns.

Will I need to wear a mask?
Yes.  Masks are required when not sitting at your party’s table.

What do I need to bring?
In traditional Dinner en Blanc fashion, you will need to BYO dinner, drinks, plates, cutlery and glassware.

What will be provided for my party?
Unlike a traditional Dinner en Blanc, your table, chairs and linens will all be provided for you!  There will also be live music and a photographer.

Are there bathrooms available during the event?
Yes!  The Library will make its accessible bathroom available to Dinner attendees during the event.
