Fredericksburg First Night’s mission and goal is to provide safe, entertaining and family friendly alternative to traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations. In doing so, we broaden and deepen our city’s appreciation of the visual and performing arts through innovative, diverse and high quality New Year’s Eve programs which offer the Fredericksburg Community a shared cultural experience that is accessible and affordable.

Founded in 1976 in Boston (1991 in St. Louis), First Night is a community celebration of the New Year expressed through the arts.  It is a major visual and performing arts festival created by and for the community to welcome the New Year.  In order to maximize the participation of people of all ages, First Night is a non-alcoholic event.
