Save the date for Northampton's most beloved signature event. On Saturday, December 31st, the Center for the Arts invites you to a city-wide celebration of creative community from noon until midnight. For the 27th time, we host a family-friendly festival of the arts that includes fireworks at 6:15 pm and culminates in a traditional ball-raising from the roof of the Hotel Northampton. We look forward to gathering with friends, neighbors and visitors at 20 downtown venues for an incredible array of entertainment presented by a wealth of talented performers.
