First Night Evanston is Back in Person at the First United Methodist Church on Dec. 31

December 31st, 2022 @ 6:00 PM - January 1st, 2023 @ 12:30 AM

$15 – $35

Live entertainment is back, and First Night Evanston 2022 promises to be the best yet with a special evening of music and mind bending. Headlining this in-person extravaganza, which will be held at the First United Methodist Church (512 Church St.), is musician extraordinaire Corky Siegel.

Siegel is known internationally as one of the world’s great blues harmonica players, blues pianist, singer and writer of unusual songs, a Chamber Blues progenitor and sole pioneer/composer of award-winning revolutionary works that weave blues and classical forms together.

Also joining the live FNE lineup this year is in-demand entertainer Chris Carter. A mind reader, or “mentalist,” Carter electrifies the audience from the stage with stunning and hilarious demonstrations of thought reading and mental influence.

As always, First Night Evanston is committed to providing a family friendly experience that appeals to revelers of all ages. The Timezone Jazz Combo, featuring seven of Evanston Township High School’s finest musicians, will round out the evening’s events.

While taking public transportation is always encouraged, FNE will be providing a limited number of parking vouchers for the Evanston Place parking garage on Church St.

Tickets are $30 general admission or $15 for students 21 and under (with ID) in advance on Eventbrite.

Tickets also will be available at the door for $35. Register on Eventbrite:

To ensure a safe start to the new year, guests must be vaccinated and masks will be required in the venue for the duration of the performance.
