First Night Button

The original First Night came into existence in Boston in 1976. It was an attempt to bring the community together after racial strife had struck. The City used the visual and performing arts as an integral part of a healing ritual. It worked. Its success and acceptance were unprecedented.
Between 1981 and 2001, more than 200 other cities around the world have joined together starting their own First Night Celebrations.

Teaneck's last five First Nights were enormous successes, attracting thousands of participants. First Night Teaneck `99 won the prestigious Creative Programming Award from First Night International and First Night Teaneck 2000 and 2001 were featured live on Channel 12 News.
