Le Dîner en Blanc Richmond, Saturday, August 5
From global phenomenon to highly sought-after “secret”, Le Dîner en Blanc will take over one of Richmond’s public spaces on August 5, 2017 for the first time ever. About Le Dîner en Blanc – Richmond Hosts, “Le Dîner en Blanc.” This très chic picnic is equal parts mystery tour, pop-up feast and je ne sais quoi! Launched in Paris nearly 30 years ago by François Pasquier and a handful of friends, Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris now attracts over 10,000 people each year. What began as a “friends and word-of-mouth only” event has grown into an international epicurean sensation in over 70 cities in more than 25 countries. While the technology behind the event may has changed over the years, the principles fuelling this fantastic event have not: guests continue to gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most beautiful locations.
“We felt Richmond, Virginia was primed for such a dazzling event as an increase of interest in fine living and fine food has been noted over the years,” agreed Enjoli Moon, Christine Wansleben and Ayana Obika, co-hosts of Le Dîner en Blanc – Richmond, who have a combined total of over 20 years’ experience in the events industry and hopes to make this very first edition a success that will pave the way towards establishing a long-standing tradition.

The 9th Annual St. Elizabeth Catholic Church Jazz & Food Festival, 2712 2nd Avenue. Live music featuring Legacy Band, Glenroy Bailey & Company featuring Debo Dabney, Rick Elliott, Carlton Ayles and Curvy Reid Saturday, August 5 from noon to 7:30pm. The festival also is a showcase for community vendors, a Food Truck Rodeo, with some of the city’s best food trucks, a beer and wine garden for the adults and a Kids Zone featuring a 15 foot water slide for the children. The St. Elizabeth Catholic Church Jazz & Food Festival benefits the St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, a community of about 100 families with a rich and proud history with the first African-American woman, Sister Cora Marie Billings, serving as the Pastoral Coordinator. Since its inception, the purpose for the St. Elizabeth Jazz & Food Festival has always been to serve as the sole annual fundraiser for this Parish and its various ministries, and most importantly to promote evangelization among St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, the members of its parish and Highland Park Community for which it dwells. For more information on St. Elizabeth Catholic Church Jazz & Food Festival visit http://www.steliz3c.com/. The festival is once again hosted by CBS 6 Events & Entertainment Reporter Antoinette Essa.
