About 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. and midnight. The completely free annual event showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in Halifax. Nocturne 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, local businesses and government organizations to provide people access to art and wonder with no barriers.
Every year, the city of Halifax partners with Nocturne and that year’s curator to bring together artists who create projects at fixed points across the city for one evening. These Anchor projects echo the year's theme and create gathering spots to explore the festival from.
2017 is Nocturne’s 10th anniversary!
