First Night Saratoga is New York's largest New Year's event outside of NYC!

For 20 years, First Night Saratoga has been the go-to event for families ringing in the new year.  As we planned for our 20th anniversary, we asked hundreds of people what they wanted to see and hear and this year's program is a reflection of that.  

We have brought in the best from all over the spectrum of arts: musicians, dancers, magicians, and even a few psychics!  We worked with dozens of venues and nearly one thousand volunteers and performers to bring you the biggest First Night Saratoga event the region has ever seen.  The evening starts with 1,500 people running in our First Night 5K and ends with SPAC's 50th Anniversary First Night Fireworks display by Northstar Fireworks in Congress Park.  

First Night 2016 Highlights:

-Only $15!
-70 Live Musical And Performing Acts
-Over 30 Venues Throughout Downtown Saratoga Springs
-Children Under 12 Are FREE!
