Celebrate New Years Eve with First Night 2017 in downtown Portsmouth. First Night is a wonderful festival for all ages filled with music, fireworks, dancing and ice sculptures! Of course we cannot make all of this magic happen without the help of wonderful volunteers!

There are a wide variety of opportunities for volunteers including assisting at the various venues, selling buttons, and helping with logistics. Volunteer shifts are only 3-4 hrs long, so you can lend a hand and enjoy the festivities! All volunteers will recieve a free First Night sweatshirt that acts as an admission pass.

Volunteers are needed in the week leading up to the event as well as on the day of: beginning at 9:00 a.m. and running until 1:00 a.m on Jan. 1 st.
