Hello Friends of First Night Burlington!
It’s just under a month until our 32nd annual First Night festivities will take place in downtown Burlington. Artists, volunteers and staff are all gearing up to make this one of the best New Year’s Eve celebrations yet. All you have to do is buy your buttons and tickets!
You may know by now that our button prices have been significantly lowered this year in order to make First Night more accessible for the entire community. Adult buttons cost just $15 while Kids’ buttons will remain at the low price of $5. For students over 12 years of age with a valid ID, there is a new Student button available for only $10! A Student button must be purchased with a valid student ID or proof of age for middle-school students without an ID. As a result, Student buttons can only be purchased at the First Night office at 230 College Street, Burlington. The $10 Student button price will remain the same even on the day of the First Night festival, December 31.
Buttons are, as always, available by phone at (802) 863-6005, online, or in our office at 230 College Street. Still, we are aware that many of our First Night Burlington guests come from all corners of Vermont. In order to accommodate you, there are various outlets across the state where buttons are now on sale.
The First Night Burlington 2015 Festival Guide is available at all button sales outlets. If for any reason the Program Guide is out of stock, just head to our website for a printable version of the schedule.
Tickets for our featured shows – the Vermont Youth Orchestra, Circus Smirkus, Burlington Taiko, the Bluegrass Gospel Project, and Ray Vega & Tales From The Boogie Down – are just $5. Tickets can be purchased at the First Night office or on our website. (Tickets are not available at button sales outlets.)
For those of us involved in organizing First Night Burlington, there is no better holiday gift than seeing our community enjoy the celebration and begin the New Year with a smile. We look forward to seeing all of you very soon!
