Art All Night 2021


Art All Night returns live and in person on September 25!

Art All Night celebrates the visual and performing arts, showcasing the diverse talents of our city’s creative community. Public and private spaces throughout our business district transform into pop-up galleries and performance stages for an evening of art in all its forms. This fall, as our city and neighborhood emerge from more than 18 months of social, economic, and public health crises, Art All Night celebrates the arts as a catalyst for renewal, connection, and community.

Tenleytown has hosted Art All Night annually since 2016, featuring hundreds of artists and performers each year and welcoming 15,000+ art lovers to our business district. We look forward to returning to a live, in-person celebration in 2021 and will follow all public health guidance and safety measures to ensure the wellbeing of artists, performers, attendees, patrons, and business owners.

Art All Night Planning Committee

Art All Night committee members bring their creative energy, can-do spirit, and love for the arts to plan and produce the annual festival. Volunteers with backgrounds in the visual or performing arts, event planning, volunteer management, community outreach, and marketing welcomed, as well as anyone who wants to roll-up their sleeves and learn what goes into producing a large-scale community event. 


Venue Coordinators

Love planning & details? Enjoy working with artists? Help the Art All Night committee finalize logistical details for one of our Art All Night venues, and be the lead volunteer during the event. Venue Coordinators volunteer 1-2 hours per week in the month prior to the event, and approximately 4 hours on the night of the event, still leaving plenty of time to enjoy the festival.


Volunteer during Art All Night

To make the festival a success, Tenleytown Main Street depends on local assistance of 40 - 50 amazing people with great personalities and a love for the community!  Our night-of volunteers are among our most crucial roles as they provide support to our talented local artists and help festival goers enjoy all Art All Night has to offer. Volunteers for Art All Night will be the first contact for many of the thousands of patrons expected to attend the event. Their critical role will be to provide logistical support to artists and performers and to foster a spirit of helpfulness and hospitality for attendees. With multiple two-hour shifts available, you can volunteer and then explore Art All Night for the rest of the evening.
