A Charlottesville New Year's Eve

First Night Virginia

Since 1982 Downtown Charlottesville has been host to an affordable, family-friendly way to ring in the New Year. The First Night tradition, originally started in Boston, has attracted hundreds of thousands of people to take in a night filled with live arts, music, and plenty of activities to inspire any age.

There are a few ways you can get a wristband to attend the events that are apart of First Night Virginia:

  • Volunteer for First Night
  • Donate blood to Virginia Blood Service at the Omni Hotel from 10:00am until 2:00pm on the 31st
  • Purchase a wristband, or a family wristband pack

We love First Night Virginia and hope to see plenty of our Cville friends downtown on the 31st for a fun-filed night!
