Picnic en Blanc Wood River is an annual event, the location of which is only revealed at the very last minute. A group of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a “chic picnic” in a public space ‘not intended for such a purpose’. You will receive a detailed explanation upon registration. Until then here are the basics:
- 1. You must wear ALL WHITE
- 2. Everything you bring (except food) must be ALL WHITE
- 3. You must bring a guest
- 4. Each pair of guests brings their own picnic, table, chairs, table-cloth, white napkins and place settings (no paper) this is meant to be a glamorous event.
- 5. You may need to walk a bit with all of your belongings so keep this in mind during preparation.
*** These are non negotiable if you can not comply, please do not register. ***
You will receive some more detailed info in your registration confirmation. Be sure and look for the ‘Picnic en Blanc info’ download.
