First Night 2017
Saturday, December 31st 2016: 6pm to midnight
First Night 2017 is a Night of Magic and we have plenty of performers ready to boggle your mind. Jon Stetson, one of the most well-known mentalists in the United States, will read thoughts with unbelievable accuracy and comic hypnotist, Michael Ray will bring the most suggestible of us up on stage for some ridiculous New Year’s hijinks. Patrick Davis will amaze with feats of levitation and up-close magic and at Empire State College we have more divinators than ever before (tarot, runes, psychic mediums), providing you insight into what's in store for the coming year.
What is First Night Saratoga?
As one of the oldest and largest First Night celebrations in the country, First Night is the most affordable, accessible, safe and exciting all-ages New Year's Eve event in the region. On December 31st join more than 15,000 revelers as Saratoga Arts presents over seventy regional and touring performing groups in thirty venues throughout Historic Downtown Saratoga Springs. Starting with the 5k roadrace at Skidmore College at 5:30pm, culminating with the fireworks in Congress Park at midnight and packed full of live music, dance, comedy and magic in between, First Night Saratoga will be a highlight of your outgoing year.
