Noon Year’s Eve at the Crocker Art Museum
Monday, December 31, 10am, no cover
There are 100 to 200 different ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve—we feature a couple dozen later in the calendar—but the Crocker’s is an outlier as a free, family-friendly, purple-themed event. Wear your violet shades and celebrate art, community and 2019, with a new year countdown 12 whole hours before midnight. There’s live steel drum music from the Pan United Youth Movement, live dancers from the Turn Verein and the Far East Dragon Lion Dance Association, along with mother-daughter poetry team Straight Out Scribes. Whether you want to go to sleep early or squeeze two countdowns into your day, this is your event. 216 O Street, crockerart.org/events.
