Buy a First Night State College Button
Select button quantity

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.

Buttons can be purchased online now through December 24th. You can also purchase buttons at the Centre Region retail outlets listed below after December 5 (special button 4-packs are only available at select locations). If you don’t get a button in advance, they will be available at First Night State College performances and information sites on December 31st.

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