Blacksburg en Blanc

August 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm



Some of you may remember the annual Blacksburg en Blanc picnic that The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. first hosted in August 2014. A few days later, The Blacksburg Museum & Cultural Center opened its newly renovated doors. The gallery and museum had many partnerships along the way as well, so it is only fitting that we celebrate the museum’s 10-year anniversary with a relaunch of this fun event! The concept is simple and will be the same as in years past.

We provide:
  • a professional tent on our lawn with cafe lighting
  • tables
  • tablecloths
  • chairs
  • a few table decorations (we also encourage your creativity in bringing your own!)
  • music entertainment
  • a silent auction – proceeds benefit the various programming that our foundation brings to our community
  • we will also provide trash cans and indoor restrooms
You provide for yourself or your group:
  • food
  • alcoholic and/or non-alcoholic drinks
  • cutlery
  • napkins
    think about a picnic in the woods – you pack it in, you pack it out

We hope to see as many people as possible from the picnic’s early days and to introduce new people to what we hope will be an annual event.

The Dinner’s Early History
The Dîner en Blanc (“Dinner in White” in French) concept began in Paris in 1988 when François Pasquier invited a group of friends to an elegant outdoor dinner at the Bois de Boulogne, asking them to dress in white so they could find each other. It is now a worldwide annual event spanning six continents. Diners are required to provide their own food, tables, chairs and tablecloths. Only a select number of participants who have previously signed up are made privy to the location the day of the dinner, and generally converge in an iconic urban location.
