Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

Zone A Downtown North


Zone A offers 52 projects to explore.

Two separate Exhibitions produced by the City of Toronto and curated by Gregory Elgstrand and Thom Sokoloski present a playful, participatory and interactive environment where a circus of ideas are met with a nocturnal urban fantasia that explores the present, past and future. Each Exhibition Project is mapped with a red square.

  • Immerse yourself in the sounds of a parade that you can hear but cannot see at Old City Hall
  • Be the last person standing in a blindfolded, steel-cage battle inside the Toronto Coach Terminal
  • From the stage, experience Massey Hall played as the world's largest instrument
  • Gaze into the Looking Glass high above your head in the Toronto Eaton Centre
Zone A also features 37 Independent Projects waiting to be discovered. All Independent Projects are mapped with a black circle icon.

Getting to Zone A

  • Most of Zone A is easily accessible by the Yonge-University subway line.
  • Hop off at Dundas Station and begin your journey at the Scotiabank Information Centre at Yonge-Dundas Square.
  • From here, you can easily walk to Zone B in the Financial District and catch the 509 Harbourfront Streetcar from Union Station to Zone C.
  • Pick up a TTC Day Pass and ride all-night long.
  • If you're driving in from out of town, park and ride to avoid city traffic. Look for pay parking near the TTC's all-night subway stations.
