Are you an artist or entertainer? Interested in performing for a live audience on one of the most celebrated occasions of the year?

If so, First Night Charlotte is looking for people willing to perform on New Year’s Eve in uptown. The application deadline has been extended until July 31.

Begun in Boston in 1976, First Night is an alcohol-free community celebration of the New Year that is now celebrated in over 200 cities internationally. The celebration aims to advance the public’s appreciation of visual and performing arts through an innovative, diverse and high-quality New Year’s Eve program that offers a shared cultural experience, accessible and affordable to all.

First Night continues the ancient tradition of marking the passage of time but provides an alternative to the usual way present-day celebrants usher in the New Year (i.e., alcohol and adult-oriented venues). A program of Charlotte Center City Partners and presented by WBTV and the Arts & Science Council, First Night Charlotte is created by and for the community.

Interested entertainers can find the downloadable Artists Application at under the announcements section.
