‘La Nuit Blanche’ (White Night) is an “all-night arts festival” in Paris, held every year from 7pm till 7am on the first Saturday in October. During this one night, Paris blossoms into a breathtaking venue for art installations, performances (music, dance, film, literature, art & design), themed social gatherings, and many more artistic activities. This year we will be able to witness of Paris turning into a gigantic carnival venue on Saturday the 4th of October.


‘The White Night Festival’ offers free visits to museums, art galleries, and other cultural institutions. It was launched in 2002 and the concept of the festival came from ‘Jean Blaise’, who founded the ‘Research Center for Cultural Development’ in Nantes, France, in 1984. Several years later Nantes became one of the renovating cultural city in France, establishing a "contemporary patrimony", which led Blaise to create a late-night cultural festival, "Les Allumées" (The Lighted Up). His concept was to have an arts festival in Nantes, 6 p.m. till 6 a.m., over six years with artists from six cities.


In its 13th edition of ‘La Nuit Blanche’ will play host to more innovative and eye-catching artistic events than ever before to offer opportunities to citizens to interact with the urban space with door fully opens to anyone. If you would like to experience unique ambiance and be enraptured by art and music, visit Paris- a city that never sleeps and enjoy the city like true Parisians!
