First Night Saratoga 2016
First Night is NY's largest New Year's Eve event outside of NYC!
Music lovers, you won't want to miss First Night Saratoga! Folk artists, holiday choruses, rhythm & blues singers, jazz musicians, rock 'n roll artists, country music bands, pop singers, classical orchestras, acapella groups, opera singers and many other musical entertainers will perform at over 30 different venues in Saratoga.
Most First Night venues are within reasonable walking distance of each other. It's a beautiful stroll through downtown Saratoga Springs, but dress warm as it can be chilly! Most shops and restaurants are open late, so you can also stop in to your favorite spot to warm up. See 2016 First Night Entertainment Venues »
One button does it all! A First Night Saratoga admission button provides you access to all 35 First Night venues and 70 First Night performances and happenings, plus the free shuttle all night long.
Buttons are still only $15, and Kids are FREE (12 and under) with the purchase of adult button!
PLEASE NOTE: Make sure to wear your button visibly throughout the evening at First Night.
First Night would not be possible without the help of many dedicated volunteers. Last year approximately 260 men and women assisted in overseeing performance venues, answering questions, and ensuring that over 10,000 revelers rang in the New Year safely.
All volunteers receive a free First Night Saratoga admission button and a First Night poster. Register to volunteer early this year, especially if you have a favorite venue you wish to be placed at. All volunteers will be required to attend training sessions!
Make First Night Saratoga a yearly New Years tradition for your family! For more information on this holiday event, contact Saratoga Arts at (518) 584-4132 or visit them online.
