Bright Night is an artist-run, arts-oriented New Year’s Eve celebration that carries on the tradition of First Night Providence.  Bright Night was founded in 2003 when First Night Providence was cancelled after 18 years.  The organization’s goal is to provide a fun-filled New Year’s Eve party featuring family friendly activities, performances, and exhibits.

Tickets for the full night of Bright Night performances can be bought at the skating rink.
