First Night St Pete is ringing in it’s 26th Anniversary Celebration of the Arts with a NEW Executive Director at the helm and a NEW take on this traditional community driven arts event with the addition of 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. This year even “Elvis” with Cottondale Swamp will be in the building.
Join the celebration in downtown St Petersburg on December 31, 2018 for another art filled New Year’s Eve! The ticket for entry into 10 different venues requires the purchase of a custom designed First Night St Pete button. This year’s button art was designed by the talented and whimsical artist, Jennifer Kosharek.
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 like Derek Donnelly, James Oleson, Zulu Painter, Freddie Fred, Imagine Museum, Creative Clay, NOMAD art bus (and more) will transform South Straub Park in to a magical interactive wonderland! This year’s Fireworks will fill the night’s sky again at 8:00 p.m. and Midnight and are presented by 400 Beach Seafood and Tap House, Parkshore Grille and the Annex. First Night St Pete is held from 4:00 p.m. until Midnight and is by far fun for ALL AGES!
