Festival Spectacle      Saturday

Various Venues

It’s a night full of artistic fun as Nuit Blanche returns to Saskatoon for a fourth year. This is a one night only festival full of visual art, dance and performance. The festival has spread out this year for performances in Riversdale, the downtown and the Broadway District. The theme the year is “see your city in a new light” and each artist is responding to it in their own way. There will be a performance of Curtis Peeteetuce’s storytelling piece Immemorial, an interactive clothesline by artist Dee Lowe that encourages the public to make their own items to hang on it and a kinetic light art display by Monique Martin and Margaret Michel that will change and evolve throughout the night. This festival is free to the public and Nuit Blanche has set up an interactive map to help you find all the performances and art displays.
