First Night Providence is Rhode Island’s most dynamic artistic celebration, a spectacular and diverse arts extravaganza mounted in downtown Providence on the eve of each New Year.
Featuring nearly 200 acts in 30 indoor venues within downtown Providence, First Night Providence has grown mightily since its inception in 1985. First Night has drawn as many as 50,000 people to the day-long festivities. Family oriented and alcohol-free, the event offers a wide range of creative, often participatory activities for the enjoyment of audiences of all ages.
