For 40 years, Boston’s First Night has been a cherished tradition and a signature event for our city. It has been a very successful New Year’s Eve celebration of artistic performances, the wonders of the season and the beginning of a new year.
This celebration will be free and open to all. Entertainment and specialty attractions will be focused in Copley Square and the Boston Common. Many of the beloved traditions of First Nights past will be retained, including ice sculptures and light displays. In addition, arts and musical performances will take place in numerous inside and outside venues around the heart of the event.
