Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014

A guide to Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014

Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014 gets started in a just a few hours. In an effort to help you out with last minute preparations, here's a roundup of our pre-coverage of this year's all-night art event and a few helpful links as pertains to getting around the city. The proceedings officially get under way at 7pm and extend to 7am, though if past years are any indication, the event starts to wrap at around 5am.

If you can make it out during the 3am to 5am window, you're likely to dodge lines but also to encounter greater instances of public drunkenness, which depending on your perspective might be entertaining or annoying.
