A spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration in downtown Columbus with fireworks, live entertainment, activities and fun for all ages!
Thank you for another successful First Night Columbus! Check back for 2014 information.
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. First Night provides hands-on activities involving the imagination and creativity of all participants as well as entertainment at more than 10 different indoor venues in Downtown Columbus including Veterans Memorial and COSI.
This year First Night is moving to The Mile! Patrons will be able to stroll the Scioto Mile to enjoy entertainment at any of our three NEW venues: Columbia Gas, The Supreme Court Building and the Ohio Department of Employment Services. Admission to all these venues is included with the purchase of the 2103 First Night Columbus button. The night concludes with a Grand Finale and fireworks show at Midnight (in front of COSI).
The event is Monday December 31, 2012
FUN STARTS at 5 p.m.
