Event Details

Kigali’s 6th Dîner en Blanc; An extraordinary night. An unconventional picnic.

The global phenomenon, Dîner en Blanc will once again take over Kigali’s public space on August 11th, 2018. This internationally celebrated pop-up picnic is attended annually by as many as 15,000 people in cities around the world. After being the first African city to host this global event in 2012, this year will mark Kigali’s 6th official Dîner en Blanc.

Globally, Dîner en Blanc® promotes friendship, elegance, and a sense of community amongst participants. In Rwanda, the annual event seeks to become part of the fabric of the country’s MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and events) tourism strategy and to promote local businesses and entrepreneurs.

Dîner en Blanc® Kigali is an annual event that attracts domestic tourists as well as participants from the region (Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, Ivory Coast, South Africa) and the world (Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Australia, the Netherlands, and the US). The event has made its mark not only by offering a unique tourism product, but especially by promoting local business such as event planners, restaurants, caterers, hotels, retailers, musicians, artists, designers, carpenters, decorators, and tailors.

The location of the pop-up picnic will remain undisclosed until the day of the event when pre-registered guests will be transported from various bus points around Kigali to the secret location. In previous editions, the event was held in Gacuriro in 2012, Giporoso in 2013, Kagugu in 2014, Amahoro Stadium in 2015 and Kigali Conference and exhibition Center in 2016.
