First Night

First Night Dahlonega 2023

First Night Dahlonega will WELCOME 2023 in style as we gather around the town square to seek hope, find purpose, and celebrate the performing arts in true festive style. Downtown Square will turn into incredible performance venues to celebrate culture and the arts and showcase amazing talent from all over the region.
The First Night movement began nearly 35 years ago in Boston when a group of artists and residents got together to create a small festival of the arts to help ring in the New Year. Since then, the movement has grown in Boston and throughout the United States. Today, over 100 towns gather to celebrate with family and friends in a festive fashion to ring in the new year.
First Night Dahlonega is special for the North Georgia area as it is hosted by Dahlonega’s most beloved non-profit, Jeremiah’s Place. Everyone has access to all the entertainment, the town venues all evening long! Then at 11:59 pm all of Dahlonega joins together to welcome in the dawning of 2023 with their own Golden Nugget Drop in the town square.
It’s all great fun, affordable, safe and venues are alcohol-free. It’s a North Georgia favorite, for sure, so make your plans now to join us for the 8th Annual First Night Dahlonega on December 31st. We will see you there!

Thank you.
