The Downtown Henderson Partnership invites the community to their fundraiser “White on Main” Al Fresco Dinner on Saturday, September 27, 2014 located on Main Street between First and Second Streets in downtown Henderson, KY from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

This event was held for the first time in September 2012 to celebrate the completion of the of the water/sewer separation construction project in downtown. The DHP turned this event into a fundraiser in 2013 and are continuing the event in 2014.


The dinner event is fashioned after the original “Diner en Blanc” the well-known pop-up picnic in Paris. The DHP will provide tables for 8, chairs and white table linens for $100. Attendees will furnish their food, tableware (plates, silverware, glasses) and table decorations. We will line the tables down Main Street and everyone who reserves a table is encouraged to decorate their table in white to help us transform Main Street into a magical evening decorated in white! We encourage the participants to wear white and men to wear white shirts and khaki’s.

Begin putting your creative ideas together! We will have a table decorating contest with prizes awarded. In order to participate in the contest, the table decorations will need to be colors that fall in the category of white and neutral and are tabletop decorations.

Although we will be dining “al fresco” (outdoors), please keep in mind the spirit of the event. This is a slow European-style dinner. Whether you bring your meal from home or order from several of our downtown restaurants, be sure to include an appetizer, main course, dessert and beverage. We will have live musical entertainment throughout the evening.
