Nocturne: Art at Night
Nocturne: Art at Night is a fall festival that brings art and energy to the streets of Halifax between 6 p.m.-midnight. The completely free annual event showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in Halifax. Nocturne, designed and planned by volunteers, is an opportunity for everyone to experience the art of Halifax in a whole new light. The Nocturne Program Guide provides details about exhibitions in galleries and public spaces throughout the city.
The Nocturne program and map guide residents and visitors alike to a variety of exhibitions in galleries and public spaces throughout the city.
Nocturne is a volunteer-run not-for-profit organization. We work on building partnerships with the city and area businesses and government organizations to bring the city access to art and wonder with no barriers.
Every year the city of Halifax partners with Nocturne and that yearís curator to bring art and artists to create fixed points for the evening. These projects echo the year's theme and create gathering spots to which to explore the festival from.
