It was in the dome of the SAT that the unveiling of the Montreal Nuit Blanche took place this week, in collaboration with Montreal en Lumières and the Société de transport de Montréal.
For the 20th edition, which will take place on February 25th, the number 20 will be honored in all its forms: 20, XX, wine, 2.0.
The activities will take place in eight hubs across Montreal. You will be able to find what you are looking for in neighborhoods such as the Quartier des spectacles, the Quartier latin, the Plateau Mont-Royal, the Centre-ville, the Old Port, the Mile-End or even Hochelaga.
In total, more than 100 activities will be offered to participants.
“The STM is pleased to collaborate with this flagship event of Montreal’s culture and to offer participants the opportunity to fully enjoy the program by easily moving around the city throughout the night.Marie-Claude Léonard, Director General of the STM, who also wishes to thank the STM employees for their work in contributing to the success of this great initiative.
