So, get off the couch and start your countdown the right way.
New Years at Noon
Who said you had to ring in 2018 at midnight? This year, bring the whole family to the New Years at Noon event at the Berglund Center, where 60,000 individual ball drops are ready to go! Before noon, you and your kids can stay entertained with some pretty fantastic and unique activities, such as a $10k Safe Cracking Competition, stilt walking, Batman and Spiderman appearances, magic shows, and all the traditional fare.
Tickets begin at just $8 and can be purchased online here. Don’t miss out on this Roanoke New Year’s event.
Big Lick Downtown Countdown
Roanoke may not have the allure of Times Square, but the Big Lick Downtown Countdown is bringing a hint of NYC to VA on December 31st. Now in its 5th year, the Downtown Countdown will bring life to Market Square Plaza. Featured music on the Budweiser Stage, incredible local food, craft brews, merch, and champagne are all on the agenda.
This NYE party has sold out each of the last four years, so you’d better buy tickets in advance if you want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Roanoke.
Rail Yard Dawgs New Year’s Eve Game
Our very own Rail Yard Dawgs will take on the Knoxville Ice Bears on New Year’s Eve! Held at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, VA, this hockey game should be a delicious opener to your entertaining NYE evening. Tickets start at just $8, so grab a few online.
Chateau Morrisette New Year’s Eve Dinner
If you’re closer to Christiansburg and want to enjoy an upscale dinner party on New Year’s Eve, celebrate the changing of the calendar at Chateau Morrisette in Floyd, VA. Five lush dishes of farm-to-table cuisine await, as do perfectly paired wines. Two dinners are available, but both are excellent preludes to the midnight countdown, which can be enjoyed at home with your special someone.

Two live bands will bring their talents to center stage at the New Year’s Eve gala hosted by Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center. From 40s oldies to classy jazz, both hotel’s ballrooms will come alive with some NYE tunes. When the ball drops and 2018 commences, so too will the balloons and champagne toasts. A special buffet dinner for two is also included with ticket purchase.
