About Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is a free all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art that takes place on the Saturday of the Culture Days weekend from dusk to dawn. Held annually since 2010, the events and exhibits attract thousands of people to the three zones of activity: St. Boniface, Downtown and the Exchange District. NBW 2017 will take place on Saturday, September 30 2017.

We are happy to announce that Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is now produced in partnership with the Winnipeg Arts Council.

Artists, galleries, cultural organizations and independent curators create and host their own events around the city. These events are FREE to the public and encourage and celebrate arts and culture in our community. Anyone interested in coordinating an event that celebrates contemporary visual art is welcome to register and host.
