Diner en Blanc returns to Philadelphia on Thursday, Aug. 18, to a top secret location to be disclosed moments before the event begins.

Guests wear all white, of course, and in five short years, Diner en Blanc has grown to a massive guestlist of 5,000 people in Philadelphia this time around — tying with New York for the first time as the biggest Diner en Blanc event in the country,

Today, Phase 1 registration begins for last year's registered members. 

On July 12, Phase 2 registration begins for friends sponsored by Phase 1 members. 

Finally, Phase 3 begins on July 14 where names remaining on the waiting list will be selected by lottery software to attend.
