The Fireworks have been cancelled this year (and only this year).  Due to certain uncontrollable circumstances, the fireworks show has been cancelled this year.  We will still be rockin’ until midnight and celebrating 2017, but this will occur inside this year.  Thanks for understanding!

We can’t wait to see you this year on December 31, 2016 for First Night Columbus 2016!

A New Year’s Eve

A spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration in downtown Columbus with live entertainment, activities and fun for all ages!

First Night was brought to Columbus in 1995. It is part of an international alliance of more than 100 cities that showcase the visual and performing arts through New Year’s Eve celebrations that are safe, affordable and fun, while being substance-free.

On December 31st, First Night Columbus actively engages the downtown community with entertainment, transforming the city into a stage where each individual is free to choose what to see and do.
