First Night North 2022 Returns As Live Festival Of The Arts

With over 200 artists booked to present over 60 live shows, Catamount Arts is all set to bring the First Night North arts festival back to 14 venues in St. Johnsbury on New Year’s Eve. Now in its 29 th year, First Night North again features continuous live family-friendly entertainment from 4 pm on Friday, December 31, up to just past midnight.

WRISTBANDS will be available for pick up only on New Year's Eve, December 31. We will not be mailing pre-purchased wristbands. WRISTBANDS will be affixed to attendee wrists by First Night staff when proof of vaccination, or negative PCR test, and ID are provided. All attendees -- including children of all ages -- will need to provide proof of vaccination, or a negative PCR test, before receiving a wristband, and will also be required to wear a face mask over their nose at all times while inside venues presenting First Night performances.

What about buttons? There’s more good news for First Night supporters! A limited number of keepsake First Night 2022 sponsor buttons are now available. Wear your button to show your commitment to keeping the tradition of our family-friendly, alcohol-free arts extravaganza alive. Sponsor buttons for First Night 2022 are $50 each, which includes the $25 “early bird” admission wristband. Please note, while Sponsor buttons are available for pick up or shipping before New Year's Eve, admission wristbands included in your purchase will need to be picked up on New Year's Eve with proof of vaccination, or negative PCR test. Your purchase makes it possible to open the festival to children and their families who otherwise would be unable to attend. We are confident that with the support of civic-minded people like you, First Night North in St. Johnsbury will remain the area’s most widely attended community celebration of its kind. Once again, many thanks for supporting First Night North in St. Johnsbury 2022 and the arts in our community.
