NUIT BLANCHE WINNIPEG 2020 has shifted!

Culture Days Manitoba and Nuit Blanche Winnipeg were prepared to be in compliance with all the government’s requirements around public gatherings, but those requirements shifted in late September as the COVID-19 situation in Manitoba evolved. We want to be a part of the solution to keep Manitobans safe and in a position where they can still experience the joy of arts and culture. 

We have worked with artists, arts organizations, and businesses to follow all guidelines and our priority is to keep our communities safe – for some projects this has meant rescheduling to new dates in October 2020, while for others it has meant moving to an online platform. Click on the links below for each project to learn how you can see their work.

Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is organized as a part of Culture Days Manitoba.


Nuit Blanche Winnipeg offers an open invitation for all individuals, organizations, and groups to create and host events for the night.

Each year, an Open Call is held for artists to propose pieces that will enhance the audience experience of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured in Winnipeg’s downtown core.

This is a call inviting artists working in all artistic mediums to submit projects – performance artists, installation artists, textile artists, graphic designers, media artists, architects and general creative thinkers – with a performance, exhibition or installation that will enthrall, excite and possibly introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before.
