Nocturne: Art at Night Was Named One of the 40 Best Arts & Culture Festivals in North America This Year!

When we started Nocturne, we really had a simple mission: get people out to see art. One of the best ways to have people engage with art and creativity is through interactive programming that thrills, and is actually fun. And that has been our goal since the beginning; one which has grown into a platform for hundreds of local and nationally recognized artists to share, and build upon, their work.

So we’re excited to announce the latest news: Nocturne: Art at Night was named by FlightNetwork, North America’s leading travel agency, as one of the 40 best arts & culture festivals in North America in 2018.

We cannot thank FlightNetwork enough for showcasing our work amongst some of the biggest names in the art world, and what it means for Nova Scotia. But why us? Well, here’s what they had to say about us:

Nocturne: Art at Night may be three days long, but the one night not to miss is Saturday, October 12. That’s when over 35,000 people take over the streets of these two Nova Scotian towns for what’s considered the largest arts night east of Montreal. The standout events include the Ferry-oke—or, essentially, karaoke on the Halifax Ferry—as well as the Anchor Project Program, which brings together both nationally and internationally recognized artists for events throughout the day, and night. The festival prides itself on patronage, having supported hundreds of artists through grants in the past. And on this one night, the general public is invited to take part in the fun.

At the end of their write-up, FlightNetwork reminds its readers of a key selling point: that Nocturne: Art at Night is entirely free to attend. So thank you for the honour, and we look forward to welcoming visitors this year on October 13!
