While outdoor events are free, a First Night State College button provides general admission to all indoor performances and provides essential funding for outdoor programming, too. Wearing a First Night State College button is a great way to show that you support this great home-grown event. At $10 each, it's the best deal in town. Children 12 and under do not need a button if accompanied by a button-wearing adult. (see official site for details)
