This is Raleigh's number one New Years Eve event.

The Raleigh Acorn is lowered to ring in the New Year. While the acorn (designed by David Benson) has become synonymous with First Night Raleigh, the festival is much more than the countdown to midnight. Your $10 admission pass grants you access to every performance and every venue throughout the day. That’s nearly 100 performances in over three dozen locations across downtown Raleigh.
