Nocturne art at night which enters it’s 5th year of enlightening Halifax with a night of art.
I remember last year going down and thinking what a fabulous beacon this event is to show what Halifax can be at night.
There was just such a fantastic urban vibe to the city that was electric.


“What is Nocturne?

Nocturne: Art at Night is a fall festival that brings art and energy to the streets of Halifax between 6 p.m.-midnight. This year’s event will take place on October 15. The completely free, fourth 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, map, and walking tours guide residents and visitors alike to a variety of exhibitions in galleries and public spaces throughout the city.


The Nocturne Committee lends voice and agency to the Halifax arts community by facilitating collaborations and exhibition opportunities in the form of a free, nighttime contemporary arts event. The objective of the committee is to execute an annual event that highlights the existing arts community in the Halifax area that serves both the residents of the Halifax Regional Municipality and tourists. The committee acts as facilitator for galleries, artists and volunteers to provide an annual arts event in both private and public spaces. By creating an accessible yet professional arts event for the community, the Nocturne committee aims for integrity and inclusiveness in all facets of event planning.”
