First Night Northampton
Downtown Northampton – Many Venues!
The Northampton Arts Council is delighted to present our city’s 35th annual New Year’s Eve celebration and festival of the performing arts on December 31, 2019. First Night Northampton continues to be a special opportunity to celebrate the cultural vibrancy of our community while sharing time with friends, neighbors and visitors. The event falls on a Tuesday this year, we look forward to welcoming enthusiastic crowds at the venues and on the streets of downtown.
Once again, we will witness a spectacular display of fireworks at 6:15 pm—all visible from the heart of the city. As midnight approaches, we’ll gather together outside the Hotel Northampton for a unique “ball-raising.” A bargain-priced button is still the ticket to each performance at every venue, day and night. We ask you to join us, and our partners at PeoplesBank, by sponsoring this alcohol-free, family-friendly event.
