Karaoke Hall. Flamboyant drag queen China Doll, who always has the best accessories at Harvest Noir, will be hosting our first ever DIY singing lounge. Expect the unexpected from your friends! Harvest Noir organizers Sam and Greg promise to make an appearance for a song or two.


Expect to stay up late and have an astonishing time with a thousand other guests dressed in dark elegance. Combining hoppin’ dance music, elegant dresscode and daring costumes, a dance flashmob, and an audience-participation fashion show, Dance Noir was voted one of Ottawa’s sexiest parties by Apt613 readers.


Undisclosed. For now. In 2011, Dance Noir took over the Grand Hall of the Museum of Civilization, in 2012 it was 3 dancefloors at the National Arts Centre, and in 2013 guests flooded the halls of the Canadian War Museum. Sticking with tradition, Dance Noir 2015 will occupy an equally impressive downtown venue, and create a party atmosphere unlike any other in the National Capital region. After-party guests will be informed of the secret location at the last minute by email.


Dance Noir attendees dress their creative and expressive best, ALL IN BLACK. Vintage clothing and upcycled fashion is encouraged! Be creative, be bold, be sexy.


Dance Noir is the official after-party for Harvest Noir, a chic pop-up picnic. However, many guests who do not attend the picnic come out for the awesome dance party starting at 815pm. Dance Noir tickets are available for $29.
