Nuit Blanche

The Night When Art and Culture Reign Until Dawn: First launched in 2002, Paris Nuit Blanche (White Night) has become a hotly-anticipated annual celebration of all things art and culture in the city of light. Attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, Nuit Blanche sees countless Paris galleries, museums, city halls, and even swimming pools open their doors all night to visitors-- with free entry. Elaborate light installations, edgy performances, concerts, and unclassifiable happenings of all sorts await.

If you want to taste the continued dynamism of the Parisian arts scene, don't miss out on Nuit Blanche.
For one night in Paris the idea is to stay awake and partake in the observance of night. Many public services, entertainment facilities and tourist attractions, cafes, bars and restaurants stay open throughout the night to keep people awake. The white night is a celebration of human culture and communication and encourages people to enjoy one another's company, as it is often subjugated in favour of the daytime rat race.
