Get ready to picnic in your finest white attire at the sixth annual “Noche en Blanco,” a celebration under the stars to benefit the Hance Park Conservancy (HPC) on Saturday, Oct. 30.

This multicultural unity dinner will be held from 5 to 10 p.m. at Hance Park at 116 E. Moreland St. Participants are encouraged to wear white costume cocktail attire as they dine, dance, and enjoy multicultural performances, including a dance performance featuring the Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra and other special performances from the Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, the Arizona School for the Arts, the Irish Cultural Center, The Nash and Mariachi Fusíon.

This event was inspired by a similar community “dinner in white” that began in Paris 30 years ago. All proceeds from the event will benefit the HPC, a non-profit organization committed to sustainability and the future of Hance Park.

Single-seat tickets are available for $25 or you can purchase a table for eight for $200. Guests can bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks or can pre-order a gourmet picnic from Conceptually Social Catering, along with wines, spirits and local craft beer. Pre-orders for gourmet picnics and alcoholic drinks close on Friday, Oct. 15. Full bars also will be available at the event.
