First Night Activities
The "First Night" program began in Boston in 1976, as a cap to the nation's bicentennial. The event's goal is to broaden public appreciation of the visual and performing arts while offering an alternative to the traditional New Year's Eve celebrations which focus on alcohol and drinking.
There are now several hundred “First Night” cities throughout the United States and Canada. Fullerton was the first California city to offer the event, and is the only Orange County community to present a “First Night” celebration this year.
The vendor application for First Night is due on Friday, October 21, 2011. Please download the vendor application here.
Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the event are asked to notify the Museum prior to December 31.
Personal fireworks are prohibited in the City of Fullerton.
