Austin has no shortage of events happening week to week. But if there is a special holiday the Capitol City tends to pull out all the stops and this year is no exception! We have put together some of our favorite happenings across town including family friendly events. We hope y'all enjoy the holiday weekend and ring in the new year safely!!
Austin Top New Years Eve Events:
WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY NEW YEAR W/ RYAN BINGHAM - NIGHT TWO & THREE- December 30th and 31st
Austin's hometown musician, WILLIE NELSON, returns to Austin City Limits Live to ring in the new year in style with three nights featuring special guest RYAN BINGHAM. New Year's Eve will also feature a performance by LUKAS NELSON AND PROMISE OF THE REAL and appearances by Father Time Texas and Baby New Year!
This is the City of Austin’s big New Year’s Eve shindig, complete with local musicians and fireworks. It’s free and family-friendly, and it kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday, so the fun lasts all day long.
The annual Keep It Quiet party sells out every year, and for good reason: Your ticket gets you an all-inclusive bar, music, pizza, party favors and more. Plus, it’s for a good cause — this year, the party benefits the Clifford Antone Foundation.
The W Hotel is hosting not one, but two separate New Year’s Eve parties, and the hotel is also offering room specials for the night. They’re even offering to help you recover the next day with a hangover brunch featuring all-you-can-eat pancakes and Bloody Mary and mimosa bars.
BOB SCHNEIDER'S NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY
Ring in the new year with another Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force Bob Schneider at the Paramount Theater. For more info on his annual stop on Congress Avenue visit this link.
This party has everything: An open bar, dancers, separate bars for mezcal and champagne, “bites and candy and midnight snacks” and a massive balloon drop. It’s got a steep price tag of $200, but as the name promises, it’s sure to be exquisite.
