Expanding to two nights for the first time, the theme of this year’s Nuit Rose festival is  “What Lies between Venus and Mars?”.

An international call for artist submissions exploring this theme was distributed in late 2016, with an expert jury evaluating the submissions. Last year, the festival presented 65 projects with 23 Featured Artists, ranging from visual art, to dance, literature and music and was the largest and best-attended Nuit Rose to date.

With a variety of venues downtown, Nuit Rose spotlights Toronto neighbourhoods as well as provocative, cutting-edge work in various mediums by diverse artists., with indoor and outdoor venues across the city.

This year, guests will be treated to Wiggle, a wearable art & performance extravaganza in partnership with Michael Venus and Never Apart of Montreal. Wiggle takes place on June 16th at Barbara Hall Park beside the 519 Community Centre.

The Light Parade, the first official parade of the Pride festival, returns for its third year on Saturday, June 17th at sunset. The Nuit Rose Light Parade is generously sponsored by Pride Toronto.

Attendance at Nuit Rose is FREE and open to all. As always, Nuit Rose attendees can expect transformational encounters with art that shifts perceptions, paradigms, identities, and realities. The Festival promises two nights of celebration and adventure reflecting all things that happen between dusk and dawn, and between Venus and Mars.

The Nuit Rose festival is presented by the Throbbing Rose Collective, a volunteer group of artists, curators, producers and art advocates.
