The annual Art All Night festival celebrates the visual and performing arts, showcasing the diverse talents of the city’s creative community. Public and private spaces along Wisconsin Avenue transform into pop-up galleries and performance stages for an evening of art in all its forms. And the best part? It’s all FREE!



Since 2016, Tenleytown Main Street has joined neighborhoods across the city to host Art All Night. Last year, 12,800 festival attendees enjoyed exhibits, performances, and interactive art experiences in Tenleytown. More than 140 artists and performance groups were featured – our largest and most diverse program yet.
