First Night 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 festivity 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.

Simultaneous and continuous performances of storytelling, street performances, live music, dance, theater, ice-sculpting and historical reenactments will take place in both indoor and outdoor locations throughout downtown Carlisle. A countdown to midnight and a spectacular fireworks finale concludes the festivity.

A First Night button supports the cost of the celebration and provides general admission to all events. Admission to indoor events is on a first-come, first-served basis.
