We look forward to planning this year's First Night festivities. Please check back in the late fall for updates!

Buy a First Night State College Button

Presenting First Night State College requires time, effort, and money. Your First Night button helps cover some of the costs involved in bringing you a great winter festival. A button entitles the wearer to general admission to most First Night performances and workshops. Show your button at one of these locations and we’ll entertain you on a first come, first seated basis.

Single buttons cost $10. Children 12 and under do not need a button if accompanied by a button-wearing adult.

Online purchase of buttons ended on December 24. You can purchase buttons at the Centre Region retail outlets listed below (special button 4-packs are only available at select locations), and at First Night State College performances and at information sites on December 31st.

We can’t do it without you. Please help First Night keep coming around each year. Buy a button!
