Diner en Blanc 2021: Here’s a look at the dinner party in Rittenhouse Square

Philadelphia’s Dîner en Blanc returned on Thursday, after being canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s top secret location for the outdoor party, where everyone wears white, was revealed to be Rittenhouse Square.

Nearly 3,000 people turned out in elegant outfits, with tables, chairs, picnics, table decor and flowers, for the ninth edition of Dîner in Blanc. The night included music, entertainment, photo stations and sparklers.

To comply with the city’s newest guidelines, attendees were required to wear a mask while not seated at their assigned tables.
