NYE in Detroit: Your Guide to Ringing in 2019 in the Motor City

Looking to spend New Year’s Eve in Motown? Great idea! Detroit has tons of events for any fun-loving spirit on Dec. 31. We’ve created the perfect guide on how to ring in 2019 the best way possible. No matter how you like to celebrate, there’s something special going on in Detroit.


The Resolution Ball



This annual party inside Detroit’s historic Fillmore Theatre is one of the largest parties in Detroit. The Vegas-style Resolution Ball features acrobatic performers, live musicians and a confetti ball drop at midnight.


The Motor City Gala


Usher in the new year at Detroit’s Motor City Gala at the Atheneum Hotel in Greektown. Your ticket includes a champagne toast, party favors, balloon drop, a midnight snack buffet and a live feed of The Drop happening nearby!


Motor City NYE DROP



There isn’t a ballroom big enough for this celebration! Though the location has yet to be announced, more than 30,000 Detroiters are expected to come downtown for the annual Motor City NYE Drop to celebrate 2019. Prepare for top-level live entertainment, good cheer and of course, the countdown!


David Whitney Building Bash


Celebrate 2019 with music and dancing in the newly-transformed David Whitney Lounge. DJ Vince Patricola will be at the DJ booth all night and your ticket also includes a champagne toast and balloon drop in the stunning atrium of the David Whitney building. This party also has outdoor fires for you to enjoy!


Stay at the Detroit Marriott



The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center is just steps away from any Detroit New Year’s Eve party. Ring in the new year with a stay at Detroit’s largest hotel, with gorgeous floor-to-ceiling views of the city, Detroit River and Canada. Stop by for a drink at Volt, while you’re in the lobby, too!


Several downtown parties organize shuttles to the Detroit Marriot, making going home easy at the end of the night.
