There is so much to do in Phoenix on New Year's Eve to ring in the new year! As the weather is great most of the time, there are many outdoor events, and some of them include fireworks! You can also find numerous family-friendly events taking place throughout the valley.
The Roosevelt Greenhouse in the downtown area offers a serene celebration—the Flannel Ball. During the event, families can join in the entertainment that includes food trucks, lawn games, live music, and a pinata drop at midnight. This ball also includes an art show, so you can collect masterpieces from local artists.
If you prefer to dance the night away, head to the Baby Boomers’ Dance Party that is usually held at the Hilton Garden Inn, or show your creativity at the Easel for You to Paint party that takes place at the Farm at South Mountain.
