The third edition of the White Night brings 13 cultural events to the city centre.

White Night (Bijela noć) is an annual night-time contemporary art festival taking place around the world. The idea came from Jean Blaise in 1990, when a late-night cultural festival took place in Nantes, bringing artists from different cities to Nantes over the course of six years. The idea spread around the world, so more than 120 cities participate in it nowadays.

This is the third time that White Night will take place in Croatia, so Zagreb will become part of a global arts story on September 30, 7 p.m. – 1 a.m. Find out more about the event here.


You can expect performances at the Croatian National Theatre (a light and sound installation inside the building), Zrinjevac Pavilion (musical performance), Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (a magical performance + a live cello performance), King Tomislav Square, Mažuranić Square and the French Pavilion.
