   Diner en Blanc- Hampton Roads
Official Statement

Hampton Roads, Virginia, August 10, 2015 - Over 600 people participated in Le Dîner en Blanc's inaugural Hampton Roads event which took place on Saturday, August 8th, 2015, held at Warwick Field of the Mariners Museum. Hampton Roads natives and out-of-towners dressed in their finest white ensembles and excitedly invaded the space, ready to kick off the festivities.

As the host and organizers of Diner en Blanc-Hampton Roads 2015, we would like to thank each and every one of you for coming and having a fantastic time at the inaugural event. 

Our team worked endlessly on trying create a memorable night for everyone, and we are very happy to hear that most enjoyed themselves and are looking forward for next year’s event. Once we became organizers, many cities were considered before we made our selection, and we are happy we decided to take the event to Hampton Roads. We are looking forward to many years to come. 

You danced the night away and made the biggest party in the Hampton Roads party come to life. Jazz band, Gina Payne and Pure Chemisty, got the party started and kept guests entertained as they claimed seating and began setting up tables. The crowed raved over Payne - a violinist with a repertoire that spans from jazz and r&b, to pop, rock and gospel.  At a little past 7pm, all the tables were set, and the waving of the flags signaled the beginning of what was an evening of food, fun and lots of dancing!

Hampton Roads showed up and showed out, showcasing their unique style though their garb and extravagant table centerpieces. Many guests mentioned that this was a special event in Hampton Roads to attract and boast such a diverse crowd, which was found to be pleasing.
