Get ready to grab your friends, bundle up and stay out all night at one of Toronto’s best events of the year…. Nuit Blanche!
Nuit Blanche is an annual, all night arts festival that takes place this Saturday, October 5th. This year the city will have over 110 art projects that will be featured in galleries, museums, cultural institutions and on the street all around downtown Toronto.
Admission is free and you have the opportunity to explore the downtown core and see all of the beautiful and interesting expressions of art. You can see most of the art by walking or you can jump on the subway or take a street car. They will have everything from dance and theatre performances, to sculptures and art installations.
The city will be booming with nearly 1 million people as they walk around enjoying the all night event. It will begin at 6:51pm and continue until sunrise. Peak hours are between 8pm to 1am. So if you plan to go between these times, you might have to wait in line to see some of the projects. Bars and restaurants will be open later to accommodate the many people who participate in this event and even portions of the subway will run all night, making it easier to stay out late and see everything Nuit Blanche has to offer.
Another great thing about Nuit Blanche is the food trucks that are situated all over Toronto. Whether you want hot dogs, burgers, donuts, cupcakes, poutine, pizza, Latin cuisine, or Mexican food, there is something for everyone.
