The mission of First Night Monterey, Inc. is to bring families together and unite our community in all its diversity through the visual and performing arts, to foster the public’s appreciation of visual and performing arts and to celebrate families and community through workshops and the New Year's Eve celebration. First Night Monterey, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization; programs are designed to appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds and to broaden and deepen public appreciation of the arts. The centerpiece of First Night Monterey is our alcohol-free celebration on New Year's Eve in downtown Monterey.
The First Night concept was created in 1976 by a group of citizens in Boston. The tremendous success year after year inspired First Night Celebrations in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
First Night Monterey works in collaboration with local organizations, schools, libraries, youth, families, young adults and seniors to showcase our culture and community through the arts. Professional artists lead these workshops throughout Monterey County during the year.
