“You can't go wrong when you're surrounded by great people and music...”

"I really enjoyed last year's event. I met a bunch of new people (some of which I still talk to), enjoyed a variety of drinks that I wouldn't normally have tried, and laughed enough with friends to add a few years onto my life."

Logan Storti, Reading Local

“It was nice to get outside and do something!”

"Too often I feel like the summer gets away from me. It goes from being warm and sunny to cold and snowy in a flash. This event was a great way to get outside, enjoy the nice weather, and meet some new people!"

Laura Stepnowski, Boyertown Area Local

“This year is going to be even better!”

"I really enjoyed putting together last year's event and truly loved how it turned out. But this year we're going all out. A band, more people, and during a time of year where the warm air lingers (without the bugs!)."

Kevin Kozo, Founder of Turnberry Construction Group

"Attending last year's Fête en Blanc was an unforgettable experience!"
