‘Dîner en Blanc’ 2015

Event Date: Saturday, 28th November 2015

Event Location: TOP SECRET! However it’s within short travelling distance from Circular Quay. We therefore will meet at Circular Quay and travel together.


‘Dîner en Blanc’ is a mass “chic picnic” held in a top-secret location in an open public space. Thousands of diners are given the location at the last minute and, all dressed in white, meet friends and acquaintances for a truly magical evening!

Over the course of the event, the diners enhance the function and value of their city’s public space by participating in the unexpected.

Beyond the spectacle and refined elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by a love of beauty and good taste.

Join the Volunteer Team and make this very special event possible!

The Diner en Blanc volunteer team will be a small one and we are expecting a large amount of interest in the event. Therefore we are taking Expression of Interest to volunteer on the left hand side of the page – we will then be in touch with more information and to confirm the volunteer team.

Volunteer Role – Event Assistant

All volunteers will have the same role that may involve a little bit of everything for event set up and ushering guests around the site when they arrive and leave. Tasks include;

  • Event set up and table decoration
  • Turf spray painting
  • Sparkler packing and distribution
  • Installation of event props
  • Diner ushering
  • Line management

Please note: This is a long volunteer shift that requires you to be on your feet for many hours. Breaks, meals and water will be provided but it is important that you are well prepared for a busy time with lots to do but also a very exciting event!
