Whites, Lights, Autumn Nights!

It's back for a 3rd year! Don’t miss it!
Pop-up Picnic at a Mystery Nahant Location


Buy Tickets Here

Join us for Nahant’s version of the International phenomenon known as Diner En Blanc, a yearly global epicurean phenomenon that started in Paris more than 25 years ago. It's an elegant pop-up picnic. The location in Nahant is secret, unveiled to ticket holders only one hour prior to the event. Guests will converge, set up their picnics and engage in fine dining, white twinkle lights and fun with friends, until disappearing, leaving no trace we were ever there.

Dress in your creative whites and pack a picnic dinner (be sure to include a table for two, chairs, candles, and all things to make your night fun and fabulous). An hour before the event, an email will be sent out to all ticket holders on where to set up. Then let the party begin!

ALL proceeds benefit the Nahant Education Foundation. Have fun, make history, and support Nahant kids and STEAM education in Nahant!

Adults only.
