First Night Akron is a major visual and performing-arts festival created by and for the community to welcome the New Year in Downtown Akron and is held on December 31st each year. Spread out among 10 downtown venues, First Night Akron is now in its 16th year!

If you are planning to go to this year's First Night Akron, make plans to stop in at the John S. Knight Center to see a family-friendly show written, produced and presented by your Weathervane friends!

"Two Swords, a Bag of Marbles and a PB&J"Audience participation is encouraged in Two Swords, a Bag of Marbles and a PB&J, an interactive performance written by Alan Scott Ferrall. Young Prince Vladimir, having seen his older brothers rescue Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella and the Little Mermaid, goes off in search of his own damsel in distress. His adventures take him to far-away lands where not everything is what it seems, and his travel companion — a princess in training — is more than equal to the tasks presented to them!

If you're planning to go to First Night Akron, you will need to get an admission button. First Night admission buttons help support the cost of the celebration and provide admission to all First Night venues on event night.

Buttons are available for purchase through Dec. 30 at such places as Acme Fresh Markets, Actors' Summit, the Akron Beacon Journal customer-service desk, participating branches of FirstMerit Bank, the Library Shop at downtown's Akron-Summit County Public Library, and the Stage Left Boutique at the Akron Civic Theatre. On the day of the event — Dec. 31 — buttons are available for purchase at just two places, the Library Shop and the Stage Left Boutique.
