New Year's Eve is always a busy time in Downtown Houston. The beautiful 19-century architecture of the Historic District and Theater District is a perfect backdrop for vibrant street celebrations. Especially, since the winters are so mild in Houston that you can spend hours outdoors without getting cold. So, let's see what's in for you!
Believe it or not, New Year's Eve doesn't start at midnight–the city celebrates the upcoming year since the morning of December 31. You are welcome to join one of the many daylight celebrations and bring your little ones along. Head to the Children’s Museum Houston for Rockin’ New Year’s Noon party, where you can watch a colorful parade, see the ball drop, and engage in improvised dancing competitions!
New Year's Eve in CITYCENTRE is a vibrant celebration in Houston. The big street party begins at 9:30 pm featuring live music in the Plaza. Make sure to stick around and partake in the countdown at midnight and join the greetings and cheers of the crowds. Fireworks are a part of the program!
Houston is also famous for its unique food scene, and many restaurants and clubs host their own New Year's Eve events with champagne, live DJ sets, and party favors. Music clubs, like The Rustic in Downtown, host concerts. And nightclubs, such as Space, Heart, and Clé, have their own parties and gala events. You can also go pub crawling or head to one of the city's lounge-bars.
