About the Long Night of Arts & Innovation

The 2012 Long Night of Arts & Innovation was inspired by the Long Night of Science in our German sister city, Erlangen. The inaugural Riverside Long Night of Arts & Innovation was held on Thursday, October 4, 2012. The event's 451 presentations ranged from an Instrument Petting Zoo to a lecture/demonstration by noted University of California, Riverside MacArthur genius award winner professor Cheryl Hayashi.

The 2019 Long Night of Arts & Innovation will take place in Downtown Riverside in the Fall of October 2019. This year's event will be bigger and better, showcasing the best STEM and creative arts projects from California Baptist University; California State University, San Bernardino; La Sierra University; Riverside Community College District; University of California, Riverside; Alvord (AUSD); Jurupa (JUSD); Riverside (RUSD) school districts, and many private schools. The 2017 event will also feature the most innovative technologies deployed by companies like Bourns Inc., Siemens, SolarMax Technologies, and the fire and police departments of the city of Riverside.
