From a press release:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser Presents Art All Night, the District’s only free all-night arts festival, which will return Saturday, September 14. The event will feature local artists highlighting the area’s best visual and performing arts exhibits, workshops, and performances.

Between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m., more than 90,000 art lovers are expected to visit eight D.C. neighborhoods and experience painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, fashion, music, dance, theater, silent discos, film, and poetry in a variety of unique indoor and outdoor spaces located throughout the city.

The Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) and the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) are co-sponsoring the festival, which is presented by the Main Streets Programs in Congress Heights, Deanwood Heights, Dupont Circle, H Street, Minnesota Avenue, North Capitol, Shaw, and Tenleytown.

The all-night arts festival, modeled after Paris’ Nuit Blanche, debuted in D.C. 11 years ago in Shaw. It is now celebrated throughout the city in eight neighborhoods.

In addition to showcasing local art and talent, the festival promotes neighborhood and small businesses. During last year’s event, Art All Night generated over $2 million in revenue across all participating neighborhoods.”
