Experience music, face-painting, crafts, comedy, fire-eating, wood and ice carving, carriage rides, a food court, and much much more.

First Night Carlisle is a family-oriented, non-alcoholic celebration of the arts held on New Year’s Eve on the streets of downtown Carlisle. It is a major visual and performing arts festival created by and for the community to welcome in the New Year. It is a public celebration that revives the ancient tradition of marking the passage of time with art, ritual, and festivity in a present day context.

First Night Carlisle’s mission is to broaden and deepen the public’s appreciation of the visual and performing arts through an innovative, diverse, and high-quality New Year’s Eve program, which offers the community a shared cultural experience that is accessible and affordable to all.
