First Night North

December 31, 2023  |   3:00 PM

 Catamount Arts and First Night North 2024 celebrate the 31 st year of Vermont’s favorite and longest running New Year’s Eve performance festival. Featuring about 175 performers in nearly 70 shows in venues throughout St. Johnsbury, First Night North guarantees a full nine hours of fun for the whole family. The eagerly anticipated festivities, presented by Catamount Arts in
partnership with the First Night North committee and countless community supporters, will take place Sunday, December 31st , from 3pm to midnight.

The fun begins an hour earlier than usual with early bird entertainment for all ages, especially those whose bedtime falls well before midnight. Celebrants with enough stamina for the full nine hours of live entertainment will have 70 shows to choose from, including storytellers, dance, magic, vaudeville, comedy, puppetry, juggling, and music, culminating in a community countdown, the raising of the First Night North Ball of Light, and a midnight dance party to welcome the New Year.
