Support First Night Akron

On behalf of First Night Akron, we thank our past and current sponsors for their invaluable support and dedication to our community celebration of the New Year and the arts!

First Night Akron is a program of Downtown Akron Partnership, a 501©(3) nonprofit, and relies heavily on the generous gifts of our sponsors. Without their help First Night Akron would not be possible.

First Night Akron offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities tailored to meet your company's marketing needs. If you would like to receive more information on becoming a sponsor, please contact Linda Fry, Project Director, at 330-374-7690 or
