If there's one even that proves Montreal is a city like no other, it's Nuit Blanche. An embodiment of the city's unique cavalier attitude, Nuit Blanche sees Montreal come alive despite the bitter cold of February only to party all night long. And 2016 will be no different.
Just like in years past, Montreal's Nuit Blanche is taking over the city this February, but that isn't to say the all-night-artsy-party will be exactly like previous iterations. For the 13th edition of Nuit Blanche has plenty of new features to get you excited, with your favourite Nuit Blanche staples making a return.
Going down on February 27th, Nuit Blanche 2016 will see the launch of numerous activities and events throughout the city, all happening at different hours of the night. There's almost too much stuff going on to even list out. Actually. I'm not using that as an excuse, there is literally 200+ things to see and do on Nuit Blanche 2016, ensuring your night is filled with fun.
"Red" will be the theme of this year's Nuit Blanche, which seems kind of strange given the whole wintertime-white element that's inherent to the one-night-only-festival. No clue what "Nuit Blanche: Red" will mean, but we're trusting the event organizers to do it up in ways we wouldn't even imagine.
And to ensure you get to paint the town red all night long (sorry, I couldn't help myself) at Nuit Blanche 2016, the STM will once again be running the metro for a full 24 hours. Free shuttle services will also be provided from 8pm to 3am, giving Montrealers direct rides to the boroughs of Nuit Blanche.
