Are you a clothes designer or seamstress? Then you might be interested in our Costumers Design Contest. Check out our website to get more information about it and then apply. It should be lots of fun!

Our application deadline has passed for artists at First Night, however, we are still in need of artists whose primary medium is recycled/used products or found objects. We have created a "green zone" and would love to have art that is representative of all things good and green. If you are one or know someone please have them contact the First Night office.

Have you come downtown for First Friday yet? Be sure and come to River Park Square and create you self portrait on one of our tiles. Help us celebrate our 10th anniversary in style!

First Night has been busy working on our 10th anniversary celebration. We are in the process of selecting artists, so if your interested be sure and get in your application by June 30th.

We had the honor of judging BOBfest again this year and the winner was "Lazurwuulf". This band is fantastic and we look forward to having them play at First Night.

Don't forget to attend our First Friday events and become one of 1000 "Faces of First Night". Create your own self portrait on a 4 x 4 tile that will be immortalized with 999 others as a permanent art installation piece at River Park Square.

What a great time we all had at the Tourism Awards. First Night won the table decorating contest, which was really great. We were honored to be among such fabulous tourism and hospitality professionals. Congrats to all who won and especially to the US Figure Skating and Barb Beddor. They did a phenominal job this year! Thanks for the support and your votes! Check out our photos!
