La Noche en Blanco in Malaga, every second weekend on May from 19:00 to 02:00 hrs
The purpose of the Noche en Blanco in Malaga, whose name comes from celebrating after sunset, is to bring contemporary artistic creation closer to citizens. The common objectives of all the cities that organize White Nights are: gratuity, vanguard, citizenship and sustainability.
It also promotes the exchange of experiences with the development of joint programs and the internationalization of local artists. The original festival is the White Nights Festival held in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The white nights is the name given in areas of high latitude to the weeks around the summer solstice in June during which sunsets are late, sunrises are early and darkness is never complete. However, the concept as we know today has been initiated in Paris, with its famous Nuit Blanche festival since 2002. Many other cities around the World have followed.
Malaga and the Costa del Sol joined this initiative for the first time in May 2008. The tenth Night in White of Malaga 2017 brought more than 200 activities spread over 92 spaces of the city and with a common theme, the dreams. Malaga is best known for its string of popular resorts along the Costa del Sol and the provincial capital has a charming historical quarter, excellent museums such as Pompidou, Picasso, Thysen and more, bustling shopping streets packed with great shops, a buzzing nightlife and city beaches lined with excellent seafood restaurants. On this special night, all the city’s residents and visitors take to the streets to see art expositions, visit museums and monuments, attend concerts, and enjoy hundreds of free activities and events that are offered over the course of evening.
This year, Muses and Female Creators will be the theme of the different activities in Málaga. Choose your own journey from among the different events that are taking place in the city, and take part in culture on this magical night.
This weekend is magical in Malaga City and this is a great opportunity that we can offer when organizing a tailor made program to any type of group, visiting, learning, experiencing, participating…you choose and we make it happen! When the best is possible good is not enough.
