You don’t have to watch the ball drop in Times Square to have fun on New Year’s Eve! Grove City is full of plenty of amazing local New Year’s events and a short trip away from events in downtown Columbus. From a ballroom event to sports bars, Grove City offers a wide variety of ways for you to celebrate the end of 2015 and the start of 2016!
These are just a handful of the many local NYE events happening around Grove City to ring in 2016, so let us know if we missed another great event and we’ll add it to the list. Happy New Year!
Make a whole evening out of New Year’s Eve with dinner at Cimi’s Bistro. To usher in 2016, Cimi’s is introducing bold new menu choices in an extravagant evening to celebrate the year. Make your reservations sooner rather than later, as Cimi’s will be in high demand on New Year’s Eve!
Dinner reservations begin at 6PM, and feature complimentary glasses of champagne. Start off your classy evening at Cimi’s, then head to the after party – tickets are just $10.
Grove City Rotary’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve Party
Are you caught deciding between a night of football and a fancy night of dance? Luckily, the Grove City Rotary is hosting their New Year’s Eve Party at the Pinnacle Club’s Ballroom, so you can get the best of both worlds. Dancing is highly encouraged while the football playoffs show on a big screen. Enjoy the martini cash bar and hors d’oeuvres, with tickets selling at $90 at the door. All profits support service projects.
First Night Columbus
For fireworks, music performances and entertainers, head to COSI on December 31, from 5PM to midnight. There’s something for everybody in the family, from the incredible COSI Planetarium (at additional cost), to a lineup of three Columbus-based musicians. There will be an Electrostatic Generator Show early in the evening, and many more science shows.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 on December 31. And of course, fireworks will blast off at 11:59 PM and light up the downtown Columbus skyscape, celebrating the end to a terrific year and ringing in an even better 2016!
Get your admission tickets here. (Some events at COSI are at an additional cost.)
