Nuit Blanche is a free all-night contemporary art event featuring installations throughout the city

Nuit Blanche Toronto

Date(s): October 1-2, 2022
Location: Throughout Toronto

For over 14 years, Nuit Blanche (White Night) has been one of the most colourful events on Toronto’s social calendar — but from sunrise to sunset only. The all-night art happening is patterned on similar glittering festivals like Paris’ 2001 original Nuit Blanche, which has inspired a new generation of gatherings across Canada and over a hundred other cities worldwide.

Each Toronto Nuit Blanche has a different theme explored through different interactive exhibitions splashed across the city, from Nathan Phillips Square to the Scarborough Centre to the Fort York National Historic Site and more traditional venues like the Aga Khan Museum

Artists and collectives like Daniel Arsham, Director X, Death by Committee, Esmaa Mohamoud and Bryan Espiritu have played a part in years past. Take a disco nap, sip some coffee from Toronto’s beloved roasters, and make sure you’re ready for a wild blend of visuals, music and community well into the wee hours of the morning.
