You are invited to participate in the First Night Winchester Artisan Show.

First Night Winchester is celebrating its 31st year on December 31, 2017. It is a New Year’s Eve non-alcoholic, family-oriented celebration of the arts that has been growing since its inception in 1986. Its mission is to bring friends and families together to unite our community in all its diversity through the visual and performing arts.

This is the inaugural year of our Artisan Show. The Board of First Night Winchester agreed that along with music, comedy, dancers, and other family-oriented entertainment we should also offer a venue for local artisans to exhibit and sell their creations. We hope you will join us on New Year’s Eve for this festive, well-attended event. Visit our website at for more information about us.

The Artisan Show will be part of the line-up of events for First Night.
