First Night North will go live this year with eight hours of in-person family-friendly performances in twelve St. Johnsbury venues, celebrating a jubilant return to the event’s street fair roots. Nearly 80 acts are scheduled this year, featuring upwards of 200 artists in dozens of performances, including about thirty percent new or returning performers. The schedule includes music, dance, comedy, storytelling, improv, magic, hypnotism, and more.

Your button purchase gains you admission to all performances from 4 pm to midnight, the Family Fun Fair (hosted this year by the St. Johnsbury Community HUB), and to the midnight dance party as the ball rises.

First Night North performers count on paying gigs to put food on their tables. By purchasing a button to First Night, you’re making First Night North Vermont’s longest continually-running New Year’s Eve performing arts festival possible. 

As always, First Night North relies on a large and dedicated team of volunteers. Volunteers get free First Night admission in exchange for one two-hour shift. Click here for volunteer contact information!
