Visit Art All Night and see why it is one of the top art events of the year in the Princeton/Trenton area and beyond. Planet Princeton will be there. If you see us say hello. This is one of our favorite events of the year and is attended by thousands of Princeton area residents.
Art All Night features more than 1,500 pieces of art, live glass blowing, a silent disco, a 24-hour film fest, interactive art, live graffiti, mural painting, more than a dozen food trucks, and music on three stages.
Free parking at 645 South Broad Street and at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Route 129 directly across from the Sun National Bank Center. A few hundred volunteers make sure the event runs smoothly. The parking areas are well lit and safe, and so it the venue. Art submissions range from sculptures, paintings and photos submitted by professionals to work submitted by teens and children. Many of the pieces are for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to ArtWorks in Trenton.
