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.
Join the celebration in downtown St Petersburg on December 31, 2019 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 one of St. Pete’s favorite local artists, Carlos Culbertson a.k.a. Zulu Painter. Advance price button purchases can be done by visiting First Night’s website at www.FirstNightStPete.com.
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 LOST Creations, James Oleson, Zulu Painter, Creative Clay, NOMAD Art Bus (and more) 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 us right on into the New Year. This year’s event is co-sponsored by the great City of St. Petersburg. Fireworks will fill the night’s sky again at 8:00pm and Midnight. First Night St. Pete is held from 4:00pm until midnight and is by far, fun for ALL AGES!
In order to kick off the Celebration and to raise money for the First Night Celebration, we’ll be holding a Drag Queen Bingo FUNdraising event on December 10th with Victoria Michaels. More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1273890132812486/
