First Night St Pete’s 29th Annual Celebration of the Arts!

First Night St. Petersburg is the LARGEST family friendly New Year’s Eve, Community Celebration of the Arts in the great State of Florida. We ring in the New Year with music, drama, games, comedy, lights, dance, fire, bubbles, stories, creative fun, fireworks, a scavenger hunt and much more! This December 31, 2021 we are celebrating our 29th Anniversary of bringing the City of St. Petersburg Art in Unexpected Places in downtown St Petersburg Florida.

Admission buttons are available online beginning in October online.

Our 2020 and 2021 New Year’s Eve Celebrations were a success thanks to each and every one of you who supported this community celebration of the arts. Thank you for being a part of it! Our 2020 celebration was animately captured in this video with thanks to Lens Honey, LLC. Check it out!
