First Night Evanston is a family-friendly community Celebration of the Arts taking place on New Year's Eve since 1992.

This year because of covid 19 and the lockdown, First Night will be hosting a virtual variety show celebration.

You can stay safe at home and still celebrate with Corky Siegel and all the performers we are lining up for our "Happy Blue Year" variety show livestreamed on

First Night Evanston strives to make the event accessible, welcoming, and affordable--this year even more so with the pandemic. This year we will be creating a variety show, "Happy Blue Year," livestreamed on Mandolin

Thanks to Romano Wealth, Northwestern University, Kiwanis Club, and Byline Bank for their continued support.

Donations from our loyal audience will compensate the performers and help us build a reserve for next year's live event on 12/31/21.

The Happy Blue Year Variety Show will begin at 9:00 p.m.

At about 11:50, Corky will perform a personal version of Auld Land Syne with a countdown to midnight so we can virtually ring in the new year together.

Hooray for 2021--a new, NEW year for all of us.
