Description

Step into a kaleidoscope of activities created just for First Night Monterey! This New Year's Eve, historic downtown Monterey will be transformed by the magic that influences the visual and performing arts. It's a place where time stands still and collides together, a place where your imagination (and a First Night Button!) is all you need to experience over 75 performances in 25 different venues - a place where lights dance off of buildings, Impressionist artists dance through the streets, and music streams from every direction.

  • Start thinking of your wish for 2010 so you can write your resolution and past it to our beautiful mosaic and add it to our Stain Glass Wishes
  • Grab a partner and head to our various dance venues!
  • Enjoy music from local and regional artists - we have everything from Folk to Bluegrass, Brazilian Jazz to Classical, Reggae to Blues and beyond!
  • First Night Monterey welcomes the return of Black Irish Band celebrating 20 performing years!
  • Create one of 5 Make and Take art projects to commemorate the night!
  • Storytelling, Dance, Puppet Theatre, Music, Art - we have it all!!
  • Twilight Procession at 5:30, and Midnight Finale begins at 11:15 at two indoor sites. The finale requires an additional ticket - seats are limited and first come-first served. Button holders pick up your finale ticket at Portola Plaza button kiosk between 6:30-10:00p.m.


Check back often for updates, and the full schedule coming the week of Dec. 20th. The official program guide is inserted into the Monterey Herald's Thursday, Dec 24th issue and can be downloaded from the website. But all you need to know for now is that if you're looking for an 'artful' way to bid farewell to 2009 and leap into 2010 - it's First Night®Monterey!
