Art All Night

September 23, 7:00 pm - Midnight


September 23
7:00 pm - Midnight

Tenleytown Main Street is putting our neighborhood on the map as an arts destination in the District. We’ve partnered with Main Streets across the city again this year to host Art All Night on Saturday, September 23.

Local businesses, community institutions, and public spaces will transform into pop-up galleries and performance spaces for an evening of art in all its forms. Art All Night events will take place in Dupont Circle, Shaw, North Capitol Street, Congress Heights, H Street – and of course, Tenleytown! And the best part? It’s all FREE!

We’re currently putting together a fabulous array of art installations and performances, so check back here often for Art All Night news and updates. And if you are interested in showcasing your work as part of Art All Night, we’d love to hear from you. Fill out this form, and we’ll be in touch.

Art All Night is presented by the Department of Small and Local Business Development in partnership with Destination Congress Heights, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, H Street Main Street, North Capitol Street Main Street, Shaw Main Streets, and Tenleytown Main Street, with support from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for their support of Art All Night 2017!
