As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in the United States, and in accordance with guidance of the State of California, the City of Monterey, and public health leaders, First Night Monterey 2021 was an entirely virtual event, free to enjoy from the comfort of your couch!
First Night Monterey 2021 Buttons were a donation to FNM and an opportunity to be involved in a long-standing tradition beyond attendance. Proceeds all go to support our non-profit now until next year’s event. your support will help keep us alive for our community and summer art programs, and will go towards paying for overhead and artists and help towards our sustaining the cultural economy. Without this support, First Night Monterey will certainly not be able to continue.
