First Night St. Pete

First Night St. Pete

Dec. 31, 2019

First Night St. Pete is ringing in its 27th Anniversary Celebration of the Arts with NEW exciting performances and grand exhibits in the Interactive Art Park!  This year's First Night team has put together an amazing program with eight hours of music, interactive exhibits, puppetry, aerial arts, fire jugglers, street performers, scavenger hunts and so much more. 

The ticket for entry into 10 different venues requires the purchase of a custom designed First Night St. Pete button. Advance price button purchases can be done by visiting First Night's website at

During the night of the event, First Night go'ers wear their flashing buttons and meander around downtown to visit both the indoor and outdoor venues which will be showcasing a wide variety of artistic performances. New this year is the addition of the Interactive Arts Park- where Artists and organizations will transform South Straub Park in to a magical interactive wonderland! Don't miss the performers on the Finale Stage, kicking off the evening is the Petty Experience, followed by our local rising star, Jay Camaro and then Uncle John's Band will rock you right on into the New Year.

Fireworks will fill the night's sky at 8 p.m. and Midnight. First Night St. Pete is held from 4 p.m. until midnight and is by far, fun for ALL AGES!
