Every December 31, downtown Gainesville rocks as revelers prepare to ring in the New Year with a live concert starting at 9 pm. The countdown to the New Year at midnight is celebrated with great music, free noisemakers, lively dancing and spirited camaraderie.
Come out and celebrate this New Year’s Eve in downtown Gainesville, Florida. The City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department is expanding your downtown New Year’s Eve experience. All are free and open to the public, so there is something for everyone this year! Revelers are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for seating.
