White Night is a happening in the world of contemporary arts when one autumn night  this world opens to all those seeking and wanting to become involved in new art, theater, music and dance projects.  This year – reserve the night of September 10-11.  

Last year, organizers of this forum set up eight different routes – one for families with children, one for music lovers, one for fans of the cinema, another for eco-style devotees, etc. The activities in each are designed particularly for those who want to participate.

Last year there was a total of 50 arts projects available in various sections of Riga.  

The selection process for projects still continues this summer; for the latest information on this event, go to: „www.baltanakts.lv”

White Night is one part of the Brussels-Madrid-Paris-Riga-Rome joint project  "Europe’s White Nights".

Free of charge, White Night usually attracts about 45,000 people in Riga.
