Inspired by the annual Dîner en Blanc event in Paris, Dinner d’ Arte is a “pop-up” style dining event held at a secret Valley location that will be revealed to registered guests four hours before the start, on Saturday, April 12.

At 5 p.m., guests elegantly dressed in all white will decorate and adorn provided tables that seat eight, unpack their brought-along picnic dinners and white tableware, and eat, drink, dance and be merry starting at 7 p.m.

There will be live music and wine available for purchase. For those who don’t want to tote along their own meal, guests can pre-ordered catered baskets for an additional fee. There also will be a live art demonstration, and art available for purchase from emerging artists.

Festivities will continue until 10 p.m., at which time all guests will be requested to thoroughly clean their area, leaving no trace of the evenings activities.

Hosted by Bella Palazzo and Creative Hands Cuisine, tickets can be purchased at for $35 per person, which covers the costs for permits, tables, chairs, entertainment and a bevy of surprises. A portion of all proceeds from wine and ticket sales will benefit The Care Fund.
