First Night Bethlehem

2020 First Night Logo

Bethlehem’s First Night 2020 Celebration, a family friendly, fun event, will be held on New Year’s Eve, Tuesday, December 31, kicking off at 6:30 p.m. with fireworks, followed by entertainment and activities within walking distance of the Four Corners. Participating venues are accessed with a First Night button, to be available for sale in the fall. Proceeds from button sales go to programs that benefit those in need in our community.

This year, we are again partnering with the Chamber of Commerce, Friends of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation, Bethlehem Senior Projects, Bethlehem Opportunities Unlimited, Bethlehem Community Fund, and other sponsors, as well as a network of volunteers.

If you would like to perform at First Night Bethlehem, please complete and submit an application by June 30. Performer selections will be approved by committee and decisions will be communicated via email and/or phone.

Would you like to participate by volunteering?
We need adult volunteers at all locations. Please contact Joan Gavrilik at (518) 605-6580 or by emailing to sign up!
