Get out the Clorox because the large-scale, all-white-clothing-and-decor pop-up picnic Le Dîner en Blanc is returning to Orlando this fall.

The Parisian-style picnic will take place on Friday, Nov. 10, at a secret location shared with attendees on the day of the event. Guests are required to wear all white and bring their own setup to the event. That includes bringing white linens and white tableware, along with your own gourmet food.

The event first took place at the Lake Nona Town Center last year, where guests gathered at a meeting place and were escorted to the location by bus.

The luxe picnic began in Paris 30 years ago by François Pasquier when he asked his friends to wear all white to a picnic so they would recognize each other. Now, the picnic is hosted by over 60 locations worldwide.

Entry costs between $30-$40 and non-members can register on the waiting list, though members from previous picnics are prioritized.
