๐ŸŽ‰ Last-Minute New Year’s Eve Plans ๐ŸŽ‰

 |  ,

Christmas is over and the race to ring in the new year is upon us! Stay close to home with these local celebrations and make the commute easier on a night when careful travel matters. Secure your DD or make other arrangements to get home after saying farewell to 2022!

Reservations NOT Required: most of the places on our list are drop-in events, so no need to RSVP which is perfect for those of us making last-minute plans.

Live Music Rules: Cabarrus County will be rockinโ€™ til the stroke of midnight with local artists at almost every celebration. Check out these places and their entertainment:

  • ๐Ÿช“ Buzzed Viking has a full slate of Live Music starting @ 1pm and they are also hosting an Ugly Sweater Contest.
  • ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Kodiak Bar & Lounge in downtown Concord will feature the Rush Trio playing R&B and Soul with a jazz vibe (9pm-midnight).
  • ๐ŸŽธ Carolina Beer Money will be playing at Lil Robert’s Place in downtown Concord starting @ 9pm with an acoustic act @ 8pm.
  • Southern Strain Brewing Company is having a throwback celebration starting @ 9pm. Wear your college letters or favorite college outfit and enjoy beer pong, flip cup, and more.

Prefer a DJ to Spin the Tunes?:ย 

๐Ÿฅ‚ Looking for a Unique Meal? 73 & Main in Mt. Pleasant is having a three-course dinner that is making our mouths water! NOTE: this one does require a reservation, so call ahead.

Celebrating New Yearโ€™s in Downtown Kannapolis? Consider staying at The Mill Inn. But hurry – they only have 5 suites (one and two bedrooms) and may be gone fast!

๐Ÿ˜› Got Kids? Sea Life at Concord Mills is having a noon balloon drop so grab tickets to the Sea of Lights and give your little ones an early countdown. The Kannapolis Library is also hosting a Noon Yearโ€™s Eve celebration for families. Surprise the kids with a room at Great Wolf Lodge and enjoy Snowland through January 4th. The Speedwayโ€™s Christmas Lights will be available until the 8th as well and is open until 10pm on NYE.
