Sponsor Testimonials

“Scarborough Town Centre is proud to again support Nuit Blanche Toronto’s expansion into Scarborough, following the remarkable success of last year’s event connecting the community and celebrating this sunset-to-sunrise contemporary art phenomenon. Last year’s art installations at STC spoke to the shopping centre’s diversity, transforming it into a welcome, awe-inspiring artistic playground and attracting close to 100,000 new visitors to STC. This year, we’re thrilled to partake in the ‘Queens and Kings in Scarborough’ theme!”
Scott Kyle, Director and General Manager of Scarborough Town Centre (STC).

“Nuit Blanche is a premier event that annually lights up our streets with art and performance after sunset. It connects our communities and visitors alike with world-class artists and installations that both please the eye and challenge the mind. I’m proud to support such a vibrant event and wish all involved a lovely night!”Hon. Lisa MacLeod, Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport

“Nuit Blanche has always given us the ability and platform to gain great exposure among our demographic in a non-traditional way. The unique experience they provide to the public allows us to think outside the box and create a one-of-kind experience for families and art lovers alike. The City of Toronto staff make the leading months of planning as stress-free as possible with their knowledge and assistance of everything from simple logistics to providing input on what location would best suit your needs and gain the best traffic that fits your target demographic. The City provided volunteers help the long night run smoothly by offering extra hands where it’s needed all while keeping a smile on their face and a positive attitude.”
