Rockport New Year’s Eve

December 31, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - January 1, 2023 @ 12:00 am

Henri Smith and Friends

Rockport’s annual year-end celebration of the arts returns after a two-year hiatus! A wide range of entertainment for adults and children will begin at 6:00pm and culminate with a midnight ball drop. The 14 downtown entertainment venues will include halls, churches, and restaurants, all within easy walking distance of one another. CATA trolleys will circulate among the venues and parking areas. Activities include all kinds of music, dance, poetry, magic, juggling, and puppetry. Kids’ activities at Community House culminate with an early New Year celebration at 8:45. Purchase of a button allows access to all events, and some events are free. Buttons and much more information are available on the website at rnye.org. Buttons and a printed brochure with a schedule and map are available at twelve Cape Ann locations. A smartphone-optimized online schedule will make it easy for attendees to navigate the event.

Buttons purchased in advance cost $15 for those over age 18 or over and $10 for ages 13 to 18.  On December 25, button prices increase to $20 for those age 18 and remain $10 for ages 13 to 17.  Children ages 12 and under are free.
