What Is First Night?

Ring in the New Year with thousands of your friends and neighbors at First Night Harrisonburg. Activities and performances will begin at 5:00 p.m. with children’s activities at John C Wells Planetarium and continue until Midnight in downtown Harrisonburg. To celebrate, we will highlight the arts and bring the community together by transforming retail stores, churches, and downtown businesses into performance venues that showcase local and regional talents. Past performances have included a range of live music, drumming, dancers, from bluegrass to rock n’ roll for the adults, and face painters and magicians just for the kids.
