The best and worst of Nuit Blanche 2016

Posted by Staff / October 3, 2016

Nuit Blanche TorontoFor 2016, Nuit Blanche lost Scotiabank as its title sponsor. In the weeks leading up to the all-night event, many started questioning what it be like this year. While it was a bit smaller than usual -- there were 90 exhibits as opposed to 110 in 2015 -- the crowds were just as robust as in years past, and there was genuine awe over the spectacle at City Hall.

The sheer number of video installations got a little repetitive after a while, but there were many positives to take away from this year's event, not the least of which was that Nuit Blanche seemed as vibrant as it celebrated its 11th year.

Here are our highlights and lowlights from Nuit Blanche 2016.

But as crowds of people descended upon city hall, some Nuit Blanchers were clearly inspired by all the creative vibes and left their mark on our city's iconic nameplate. And their artistic streak wasn't exactly welcome.

A guide to Nuit Blanche 2016 in Toronto

Posted by Derek Flack / October 1, 2016

nuit blanche 2016Nuit Blanche returns to Toronto for 2016 tonight a little leaner sponsorship-wise, but still primed to be a full-out takeover of the city's downtown core. As was the case last year, there's rain in the forecast, but it's supposed to be light and misty rather than a downpour. Fingers crossed.

The proceedings run from 6:58 p.m. until sunrise. Regardless of the weather, you can expect the bulk of the action to take place between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. Heading out after that will ensure that you don't have to wait in lines, but will also increase the possibility of some exhibits shutting down and plenty of interaction with drunk folks (fun!).

Over the past few days, we've posted a variety of guides to the all-night art celebration to help you check out the most intriguing art and to stay well fuelled in your adventures. Have fun and stay dry!
