Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

Mayoral Message

One of the greatest rewards of being Mayor of Toronto is working with passionate, creative people who care deeply about our city and who believe in its capacity to be one of the world's most exciting and vibrant cultural destinations.

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is an event that brings out the best this creative city has to offer. A collaborative effort of City of Toronto staff, the institutional and independent arts communities, corporate sponsors, volunteers and attendees, an event of this scale would not be possible without the generous support of literally hundreds of thousands of Torontonians who believe in the success of the event year after year.

Creative cities are successful cities. In order to compete on a global scale, we must put arts and culture at the heart of Toronto's economic development.

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebrates everything I love about this city as it is an evocative and ever-changing event that reflects the diversity of our population and showcases a wealth of top-caliber creativity that makes Toronto one of the most exciting cities in the world.

It's truly astounding to see so many people venturing out into the streets in the middle of the night, and all in search of new experiences as with art, with each other, and with their creative city. Join me for Toronto's fourth annual sleepless night on October 3, 2021 and be part of this incredible celebration of creativity, culture and contemporary art.

Mayor David Miller
City of Toronto
