NUIT BLANCHE WINNIPEG is a free all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art.
Debuting in Winnipeg in September 2010 the concept of NUIT BLANCHE originated in France in 1984 and has since spread to many cities around the world.
NUIT BLANCHE WINNIPEG is held annually on either the last Saturday of September or the first Saturday of October.
The event coincides with Culture Days, an annual, collaborative coast-to-coast-to-coast volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
NUIT BLANCHE WINNIPEG events are focused in three main zones:
1. Downtown (including the Winnipeg Art Gallery & Plug In ICA)
2. Exchange District
3. St. Boniface
Every year, NUIT BLANCHE WINNIPEG attracts thousands of people to the downtown area to celebrate and experience art.
