 AHA! Nights (Art, History, Architecture) nights are held on the second Thursday of each month from 5:00 - 9:00 PM and involve over 50 downtown museums, galleries, arts organizations, merchants, restaurants, The New Bedford Whaling Museum, The UMass Dartmouth CVPA Star Store and New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park. Each month`s event is themed so that distinctive cultural programs are presented and creative partner involvement remains robust. Nights such as "Changing Facade", "On Stage", "Summer Sounds" and "Kids Rule" consistently draw upwards of 2,000 visitors from the city, surrounding towns, Providence and Cape Cod. These events present opportunities for performers, artists and humanitarians of all disciplines and levels to engage the public. On a typical AHA! Night several art exhibits open, multiple live music is presented, theater skits or a lecture take place and interactive family and adult cultural experiences abound. This night is known as one of the best times to experience New Bedford`s cultural renaissance in its historic cobblestoned downtown.

Two weeks before each AHA! Night, a detailed listing of the program is available on the AHA! website at www.ahanewbedford.org.
