The 10th edition of DC’s annual overnight arts event “Art All Night” will take place online from September 13-26.
There will be many local artists highlighting the area’s best visual and performing arts exhibits, workshops, and performances.
“In a year of cancelled events, this one is too important to miss! Stream from home to support local artists and businesses for two weeks in September,” the event brief says.
The showcase series that will happen Friday and Saturday nights as part of the two-week event will feature hundreds of diverse artists and businesses.
These event will be finalized with one or two headline artists, including DC staples Aaron Abernathy, TakeOvaBand (TOB), Christylez Bacon, and the CPU Congo Players.
“Each year, the District’s rich culture and diverse artistic community comes together to host a one-of-a-kind arts festival that brings empowering experiences for all ages,” said DC Mayor Muriel Bowser about the event.
“This year, our virtual celebration will showcase the unifying power of art, even in these unprecedented times.”
DC Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) Director Kristi Whitfield said “The District’s annual Art All Night festival has always highlighted the District’s diverse culture while showcasing the unique intersections of art and business throughout our commercial corridors. Nothing stops our District businesses and for that reason in a year full of cancelled events we knew that this one was too important to miss.”
The festival also offers promotions from restaurants and other places across the District.
