    Please Buy a Button!


First Night is supported almost entirely by private funds. Button sales are important to make sure that the tradition of First Night is available for the years to come. Many venues are only accessible with a button. All artists are paid and the event is produced by a small, part-time staff and our terrific volunteers.

REMEMBER: Our artist designed lighted buttons is a limited edition. Buy early to assure you get one of these collector’s items! Hand stamps will be used after buttons are gone at the event.
