First Night First Day Boston

First Night 2021


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, First Night Boston 2021 has been converted to a broadcast-only event.

We invite you to join us on NBC10 Boston, NECN, Telemundo Boston, and a livestream on the First Night Website as we ring in 2021 with the hope, unity, and optimism that we’re ready to embrace.


Please note there are no firework displays on the Boston Common or over Boston Harbor this year.

The fireworks will be back for First Night 2022!

Share your resolutions for the new year and your celebrations from home by using #Together21 in your posts. Happy New Year!
