Join us for the 2023 Dîner en Blanc et Noir on Saturday, September 30th. Purchase tickets here!

Please join the Friends of the Jenkintown Library for an elegant picnic dinner on the library's front lawn, dressed entirely in black and white. 

We will supply communal tables, chairs, linens, music and candlelight. 

You will bring your own picnic dinner and drinks, plates, glasses, cutlery -- and of course, good cheer! (In true picnic fashion, we ask you to clear your place at the end of the night, leaving no trash behind).

Please follow us on Instagram (@FriendsoftheJenkintownLibrary) -- we'll be posting answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the event, and ideas and inspiration for dinner and drinks in the coming weeks!

We hope to see you at Le Dîner en Blanc et Noir!

All proceeds benefit the Jenkintown Library.

*Please note that this event will occur rain or shine. In the event of rain, Le Dîner en Blanc et Noir will be moved inside the library.

Please also note that by attending the event, you consent for your photograph to be taken and used by the Friends of the Jenkintown Library in publications, news releases, online, and in other communications related to its mission.
