Motor City NYE DROP 2018

There isn’t a ballroom big enough to house what you will experience this New Year’s Eve! The Drop is located in the heart of Downtown Detroit at  Detroit’s newest social gathering place — BEACON PARK  with an evening festival with something for everyone! At midnight witness a visual spectacle unrivaled in all of the Midwest when we lower the “D” to countdown to 2018.  After 7 amazing years, we have outgrown our previous home at Campus Martius Park & Cadillac Square and invite you to ring in the new year with us at Beacon Park, the newest addition to the Downtown Detroit Parks.  Located just a few blocks northwest of Campus Martius in the Theatre/Arena District at Grand River & 1st Streets.
