The Northampton Arts Council is thrilled to present our city’s 38th annual New Year's Eve celebration and festival of the performing arts, which takes place on December 31, 2022. The event falls on a Saturday this year, and we look forward to welcoming enthusiastic crowds at the venues and on the streets downtown. First Night continues to be a unique opportunity to celebrate the cultural vibrancy of our community while sharing time with friends, neighbors, and visitors. We'll witness a fireworks display at 6:15 pm. We’ll gather outside the Hotel Northampton for a “ball-raising.” A bargain-priced pin is still the ticket to over 50 arts and entertainment performances.
REQUIRED TO ATTEND:
First Night Northampton no longer requires proof of vaccination.
Masks are strongly encouraged but not required.
First Night Northampton strongly recommends that patrons wear an N95 mask or equivalent while in all of the venues.
Plan to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure a smooth and orderly flow through into the venues.
We encourage anyone who has yet to be vaccinated to get their shots as soon as possible. More information on COVID-19 and vaccinations can be found at www.mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine.
