Yes, but only at some other random <insert whatever name you like> ballroom party, not at The Drop. The Drop will feature multiple balloon drops and confetti storms. There isn’t a ballroom big enough to house what you will be witnessing this New Year’s Eve! We’re much cooler than that; we’re shutting down streets and setting up shop right in the middle of downtown Detroit.

Yes, there will be something for everyone! In addition to the usual winter concessions like hot cocoa and s’mores, there will be numerous locations to purchase food from restaurants, food trucks and street vendors, so grab a friend a come join us!

Yes, whether it’s coffee, water, or pop, or you want to loosen up with something alcoholic, we have you covered. Multiple vendors throughout the event space can take care of your non-alcoholic needs, and 21+ revelers won’t be without their favorite libations.

Yes, when nature calls, Motor City NYE answers! Portable bathrooms will be available on-site all evening long.

VIP ticket holders will have access to luxury heated executive bathroom trailers located right next to the grand celebration pavilions.

Simply put, no. Our goal is to make this year’s event bigger and better. The event has expanded to allow for more revelers and the Drop has been re-engineered once again this year to ensure that we bring the experience closer to the public. Due to this increased footprint, as well as added supporting elements, we are again shutting down the streets and securing more area to accommodate the growth. Additionally, we are having three stages of live entertainment with multiple acts. Follow this link to our entertainment schedule http://motorcitynye.com/entertainment/

The Drop has been and always will be free to the public. We welcome anyone who would like to come down and celebrate with us. There is no charge for general entry to the immediate area surrounding the Drop. (Private ticketed/tented areas are excluded.) Motor City New Year’s Eve is proud to dedicate this event to Detroit and all its surrounding communities.

Of course! Parking is plentiful downtown. Visit the Parking page for details.

Also, don’t forget that, if you’ve had a few too many of the libations mentioned above, you can use Uber, LYFT, or call a taxi.

Be safe everyone and DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.
