First Night Bethlehem

Bethlehem First Night

First Night is back! First Night 2022 will be smaller in size, but still full of family fun!

Join us for an all-outdoor event at the Four Corners Friday, December 31 from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm to kick off the New Year and welcome 2022!  FREE for all and all are welcome!

The town of Bethlehem and the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce Foundation are pleased to be partnering together to offer a scaled down version* of First Night Bethlehem this year.

Enjoy roving entertainment by the Sax Brothers and our annual The Ice Man Custom Ice Sculpture while we gather at the Four Corners for a 6:30 pm show by Santore's World Famous Fireworks, always a favorite!  See flyer for more information.

Arrive early for the pre-fireworks fun!

*In the past, we also offered entertainment at venues throughout town. Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will not be providing this entertainment. That means no tickets will be sold and no funds raised for community non-profits that have partnered and organized First Night every year and that benefit our neighbors in need.

Road Closed 6:15 PM -7:15 PM: Delaware Ave between Kenwood Ave and Adams Street 

No parking on either side of street starting prior to event: Adams St and Delaware Ave up to Dyer Terrace

Parking is only going to be allowed on one side of street: Hawthorne Av, Adams Pl, Adams St (from Adams Pl), Nathaniel Blvd
