Held each November, White Light Night In the Mid City Art & Cultural District is an evening to celebrate local art, food and music. Meet the artists behind some of the latest trends in the city, enjoy live music while you shop and eat in the best establishments the area has to offer.

The festival is free and so is the transportation. For those who choose to ride over walk, shuttle service will take you up and down the festival between Jefferson Highway at Goodwood Boulevard and the intersection of Government and 14th streets. Use of ride share apps such as Uber & Lyft is encouraged the night of the event. Check out the map for parking, free shuttles, and a list of all of the participating stops and businesses along the route.
Mid City is made up of hundreds of engaged, dedicated businesses. With the help of our participating businesses, we are able to provide free transportation to potential customers, cover event fees like permiting and police, and even pay for significant print and digital advertising. If you have questions about participating, please let us know! Otherwise, all Mid City Merchant Members can sign up at the link below:
Mid City Merchants is run by an entirely volunteer board of engaged business owners and concerned citizens. With no paid staff to run and organize an event that draws nearly 5,000 people each year to our community, we are always looking for unique and novel ways to connect volunteers to what needs to get done. Message us if you want to be a part of the team that makes White Light Night happen!
White Light Night is an event hosted by upwards of 70 to 80 independent businesses each fall. We encourage businesses to open their doors and parking lots to all kinds of visual and performing arts, including food, music, dance and makers. While we do not place artists at individual businesses for White Light Night, our website serves as a resource to businesses looking to find artists to invite to sell at their event. If you would like to join Mid City Merchants as an artist, you can be added to our public artist registry and host a catalogue of your work for everyone to see.
It takes a village. Mid City is lucky to have the best community leaders around. Without the unflagging support of our sponsors, White Light Night could not be the incredible moment of art, diversity, culture, beauty, fun and community spirit that it is.
Considering sponsoring? In addition to the pride of supporting the biggest, completely free community event in Mid City of the year, we make sure our sponsors are highlighted and featured throughout the event. Learn more by following the link below:
