Spirituals, gospels and traditional Chinese chamber music



About First Night

First Night St. Petersburg started in 1993, led by a group of citizens interested in bringing the event to our community. The intent of First Night is to celebrate the many performing and visual arts groups and individuals in our community, as well as the artist in each of us. Over the past twelve years First Night has brought together people of all ages and ethnicities to celebrate our heritage through the arts.

This is the 13th annual New Year's Eve celebration of the arts at 35 venues in Midtown and Downtown. Family-oriented festivities with music stages, entertainment, drama, dance, games, art, fireworks and more.
