img_4970-52ea6cdae38a0Music jingling all night long from an abandoned backyard in Vilnius Old Town, a never-ending movie show in the middle of a meadow by the White Bridge, concerts, performances, exhibitions, creative workshops, and installations taking place on the streets, squares, and the most unexpected spaces, untiring dancers, trampling the pavements… The entire city is filled with music, colors, lights, and smiles. And this is not a dream or a scene from a motion-picture. All this is the “Culture Night”.

During the “Culture Night” (former “Let it be Night!”) the squares, streets, parks, and the most unexpected spaces in Vilnius are filled with the projects of various types of arts: music, dance, theatre, cinema, photography, state-of-the-art installations, etc. A one-night festival was first organized in Lithuania in 2007, preparing for the events of “Vilnius – European Capital of Culture 2009″. Although, during the very first year only 40 events were hosted in Vilnius, subsequent festivals have involved more and more events and gathered more and more artists as well as participants – last year the festival of culture and art has invited the guests and dwellers of the city to see 150 projects, presented by 700 artists from Lithuania and foreign countries. It was estimated that the events were attended by approximately 100-150 thousand people.
