First Night Talbot 2020

December 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - January 1, 2020 @ 12:00 am

First Night Talbot 2020 celebrating over 25 years of family friendly New Year’s Eve Festivities in Easton, Maryland.

First Night Talbot 2020 will present its annual celebration of the arts by welcoming in the New Year in historic Easton. First Night Talbot follows the traditions of the inaugural First Night event that began in Boston in 1976. In recognition of the value of healthy family alternatives to traditionally alcohol-related events, First Night Talbot is alcohol and drug free and the only First Night celebration in the State of Maryland. With an added focus on the opiate crisis, First Night Talbot is proud to incorporate the Talbot Goes Purple initiative into our celebration.

Performances in 5 venues in downtown Easton! Schedule to be posted soon!

VENUES: Academy Art Museum, Avalon Theatre, Prager Auditorium, and the Waterfowl building

The now-famous Maryland Crab Drop will occur twice during the evening on S. Harrison St: 9pm – known as “Midnight in the Mid-Atlantic”- and the traditional countdown at midnight. Both of these will feature folks with our “fish hats” and sea creature puppets, led thru the street by Bagpiper Randy Welch!
