New Year’s Eve Celebrations in Atlanta

Ring in the New Year with family and friends at one of these fun New Year’s Eve celebrations happening in Atlanta!

Bring the family to the Peach Drop at Underground Atlanta, billed as the largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the Southeast! The fun starts at 7 pm with live music from Collective Soul, Ne-Yo, and other fantastic artists. At the stroke of midnight, the 800-pound peach will reach its final point of descent, and the sky will illuminate with brilliant fireworks and a shower of confetti. For more information on this fun event, now in its 28th year, visit the event website.

Duluth kicking off the New Year with the New Year’s Extravaganza at the Duluth Town Green. This free, family-friendly event will feature live entertainment, delicious food, a giant snow slide and inflatables for the kids, and live music from Craig Campbell and the Highbeams! At midnight, the iconic symbol of Duluth will arise, followed by an incredible fireworks show. For more information, visit the event website.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is sold out, but the family can enjoy the festivities with the free Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Parade on Saturday morning! The fun starts at 9 am at the corner of Peachtree Street and Baker Street. Kids will love the marching bands, cheerleaders, and of course, the decked-out floats!
