First Night Charlotte 2013
First Night Charlotte is an alcohol-free, innovative and diverse celebration of the New Year that advances the public’s appreciation of visual and performing arts through a shared cultural experience, accessible and affordable to all.
We kick off the activities with First Night KIDS at 12pm, followed in the evening with a 2-hour live airing on WBTV. Charlotte’s favorite 11-piece band Sol Fusion will take the stage at 10pm to count down to the New Year in style.
As we head into our fifth annual First Night, we ask ourselves why does event attendance and artist participation continue to increase every year?
We believe that the event grows every year for the following reasons:
First Night Charlotte:
- Is Inclusive!
- Builds Community Pride!
- Engages The Community!
- Highlights Emerging Cultural Artists!
- Is Transformative!
Don’t take our words for it, SEE for yourself! We have prepared a brief video of last year’s event. If you have not attended the event in the past, this is what you have missed. (And count the number of smiles!!)
To make this year’s First Night Charlotte bigger and better than last year, we continue to need your support. A number of our key sponsors have signed on for another year, and we have a number of great sponsor opportunities remaining.
If you would like to participate or have a more active role in this year’s event, let’s talk further. You’re in good company!
