Calling all night owls!

Nuit Blanche is a free all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art. In Winnipeg, the event has been held annually since 2010 as part of Culture Days, and attracts thousands of people to St. Boniface, Downtown and the Exchange District.

Nuit Blanche takes place this Saturday, October 1, from dusk to dawn and the Winnipeg Public Library is excited to be taking part! Visit two of our  libraries under the stars for an evening that harkens back to childhood crafts, library visits, and the joys of being read-aloud to.

Millennium Library Park
7-11 pm

Lighten up your Nuit Blanche with story time for adults, a lantern creation station, and a library lounge.

  • Library lounge and creation station open all evening
  • Story time for adults at 8:30 & 10 pm
  • Watch for our roving Book Bike with Writers-in-Residence Christine Fellows and John K. Samson. They’ll be “pedaling” some of their favourite books!

St. Boniface Library
(in the lobby and on Provencher Blvd.)
7-11 pm

Rendez-vous à la Bibliothèque de Saint-Boniface pour une soirée qui vous ramènera à la magie de votre enfance, la création artisanale, les visites à la bibliothèque et la joie d’écouter des histoires.

  • Creation station open all evening
  • Métis stories told in English and French, throughout the evening

Want to know what else is happening during the long night? Pick up a copy of the program at any library, or visit the Nuit Blanche website for an online listing of the dozens of other events and art installations taking place.

Wondering how to get around? The Winnipeg Trolley Company will be available to all art lovers from 6pm to 2am. The familiar big orange trolley and a new additional shuttle will stop at 8 different locations in the three zones (Downtown, Exchange District and St. Boniface).

Not a night owl? Culture Days isn’t just a Saturday night thing; it starts today (Friday, September 30) and goes on through Sunday, October 2. You’ll find something fascinating to check out!
