First Night Celebrations offer a wide variety of artists with a broad range of appeal. They are held in both indoor and outdoor venues in close proximity to each other. Affordable admissions Buttons provide entry to all First Night performances.
New Year's Eve is a time for renewal and new beginnings. It is an opportunity for the community to look ahead collectively with hope and optimism and appreciate their common bonds. The name "First Night" symbolizes this look forward rather than the technically correct words, "Last Night."
Each First Night Celebration is identified by the date of the New Year the event welcomes. For example, First Night 2014 will be celebrated on December 31, 2013. All cities that host a First Night Celebration observe this guideline.
First Night Council Bluffs is a unique experience, with local venue, artists, performers and vendors celebrating our unique culture and history. We will again focus this year's activities around Bayliss Park, and historic downtown such as the Council Bluffs Library, Union Pacific Railroad Museum, and more.
