First Night Talbot

First Night Talbot’s history spans over 25 years, and it is currently the last running First Night celebration in the State of Maryland!

Marketed as a family-friendly, alcohol-free New Year’s Eve celebration, First Night has entertainment and fun for the whole family. Spread out among five premier venues in downtown Easton, Maryland, culminating with the world-famous crab drop at midnight (and 9 p.m. for the early birds).

The 2020 program and schedule of events will be available mid-December



FIRST NIGHT TALBOT 2019 – our 25th Year! is well underway

BUT volunteers are still needed for many chores before NYE, and for First Night Talbot 2019 itself. This community celebration would not be possible without the volunteers who help us make it happen! All volunteers earn Crab Buttons for their own Free admission!

(Invite a friend or a newcomer to Easton to join you!)
