Nocturne Halifax - Monumental Signage ✨

Nocturne Halifax 2019

Nocturne is Saturday, October 19th!

Nocturne: Art at Night is a free event that showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in Halifax / Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Now in its 12th year, the festival brings art and energy to the streets between 6pm - midnight on Saturday, October 19th.



Come crank the wheel on our antique letterpress and print your own keepsake! This year’s theme is SCAFFOLD and we’ll reveal the design that visitors will be printing closer to the day of the event. This year’s project will truly commemorate the night and all ages are welcome!



Here is our exhibit description:

Downtown Halifax is in a state of flux. Almost everywhere you turn there is scaffolding staged to help build new or improve existing structures. Halifax once had illuminated scaffold signage in its downtown core too. For one night, participants can mix the old with the new and print by hand a Nocturne sign keepsake using a century-old letterpress.

Keep your eyes peeled for the guide to plan your route. We look forward to seeing you out! Until then, check out the post that Nocturne has put together to Have the Best Nocturne Ever!
