On Friday, March 9 many of Pasadena’s most prominent arts and cultural organizations will swing open their doors 6pm–10pm with free admission and shuttle bus service during ArtNight Pasadena.

The event is produced by the City’s Cultural Affairs Division in partnership with participating arts and culture organizations.


Twice each year, many of the City’s non-profit arts and cultural institutions open on a Friday night to provide a variety of art, culture, and music — free-of-charge — to the public. After 37 successful events, patrons have come to expect excellent performances and diverse programming. Live music, dance, spoken word, theatre, performance art, visual art exhibits and workshops, as well as story telling are among the many eligible art forms that have received MiniGrants previously.
