ABOUT NIGHT ON BROADWAY
Night on Broadway is a free arts and music festival produced in celebration of Councilmember José Huizar’s Bringing Back Broadway economic development initiative. Like never before, Night on Broadway awakens beautiful historic theatres and the blocks between them along the Broadway corridor in Downtown Los Angeles. L.A. is a mecca for creative talent of all kinds, and Night on Broadway is where it all shines – right in the heart of entertainment’s birthplace in Los Angeles. From emerging musical acts to national stars, artists to acrobats, and fashion designers to food trucks, Night on Broadway is all about the City of Angels.
Night on Broadway was first produced in 2015, after a successful “Day on Broadway” event which include walking tours and docent-led discussions about Broadway’s 12 historic theatres. A nighttime event was envisioned to bring a critical mass of people to the street with programming in multiple venues and art along the street. The event was an overwhelming success in its first year (2015) drawing 35,000 people from across the city to experience Broadway. In its 2nd year, Night on Broadway drew 60,000 people. In its 3rd year, the event drew 75,000 people, making it the fastest-growing one-day arts & music festivals in North America, and possibly the largest. The next Night on Broadway will be Saturday, January 26, 2019 and it’s already gearing up to be the best Night on Broadway yet!
