Each and every button purchase goes towards supporting First Night’s endeavors to continue to bring the City of St Pete Art in Unexpected places! Button sales are an important part of our event so that we can pay our artists and performers as well as make sure that the tradition of First Night is available for years to come. This year’s custom designed button was created and designed by one of Creative Clay’s artists, Aaron Fraser ,

REMEMBER: Our custom designed buttons are limited editions so get them while they last!
