First Night is a celebration of the New Year through the arts. It is an alcohol free, public celebration that marks the passage from the old year to the new with art, ritual and festivity.
It is Hartford's premier New Year's Eve party, a multicultural, artistically unique, alcohol-free New Year's experience with countless professional musicians, artists, performance groups and exhibits that inspire thousands of people of all ages to attend each year. It’s also an affordable way for everyone to ring in the New Year. This is the 24th year for First Night Hartford, so be sure to come and join the fun and keep the tradition going!
The day includes two spectacular fireworks shows in Bushnell Park that can be seen throughout the city by thousands of residents and visitors at 6 PM and midnight.
Venues such as the Public Library, City Hall, The Old State House, State House Square, Wadsworth Atheneum, Center Church and Charter Oak Cultural Center, The Bushnell Carousel and more will participate in the fun as they welcome the public on this New Year’s Eve holiday.
New Year’s Eve is a time for renewal and new beginnings. It is an opportunity for the community to look ahead collectively with hope and optimism and appreciate its common bonds. The name “First Night” symbolizes this forward look, over the technically correct “Last Night”.
There are over 100 communities celebrating First Night in the United States, additionally there is one in Canada and one in New Zealand.
FIRST NIGHT HARTFORD is partnering with Plum District. The busiest people in the community - moms - are often the most plugged-in. And for them, the Internet is often the best tool to (re)discover what's in their own backyard. Plum District was created just for moms. Plum District connects moms with daily deals and inspirations from businesses in their community, and helps them get the most out of their day—for their families and for themselves.
