We are busy working on the program for this year and will load the performers as we hire them so keep checking back for more information.


First Night is a family oriented New Year’s Eve Celebration of the Arts bringing music, art and entertainment to more than 25 venues in downtown St. Petersburg, FL.  First Night St. Petersburg 2017 will be hold on December 31, 2016 from 4pm - midnight and is presented by the AARP Tampa Bay. Returning for its 24th year, its Florida’s largest and most popular First Night celebration!


Be sure to download our First Night app to your phone. It will have all the First night information and interactive maps to help you navigate around the event!

Participants can walk from venue to venue along St. Petersburg's busy, charming sidewalks and shops. Along the way, downtown boasts more than 100 restaurants and bars for patrons to enjoy throughout the evening.  We are going to run a First Trolley along Second Ave NE to help First Nighters travel between the ShuffleBoard Club and the Waterfront Parks.  All riders will need to have a First Night Admission Button.
