Rhode Island New Years Eve


New Years Eve 2017 in Rhode Island is guaranteed to be the grandest party of the year, making saying goodbye to 2016 a memorable experience. From a mega affair at the Rhode Island Convention Center to smaller parties at the local bars, restaurants, and kid friendly venues all over the state, Rhode Island is home to the best places for bringing in the New Year.

Countdown Parties & NYE Fireworks

This New Years Eve in Rhode Island is sure to raise the bar yet again by throwing another NYE Masquerade Ball that always outshines most of the special events taking place in the New England area. Last year this exceptional event took place in the Rhode Island Convention Center ballroom and it more than likely will again this year. Around 2,000 people will spend the evening dancing the night away to tunes played with one of the area’s most popular DJ’s, and you’re sure to see some of your favorite local and national celebrities there as well. There will also be an open bar, dinner, dessert, the only Time Square style midnight countdown in the city, and a traditional champagne toast.

NYE in Rhode Island is sure to be one of the most noteworthy events you’ll ever experience and the state will be filling the night with so many festivities that everyone will have a great time including the kids. A wonderful example is the Bright Night event in Providence, said to be Rhode Island’s biggest New Year’s Eve celebration. Bright Night activities and amenities usually include live music, lots of vendors selling a variety of delicious family friendly food and drink, and countless kid friendly activities from arts and crafts to fun bounce houses and more. A variety of exciting festivities will be taking place at locations throughout the downtown area as well, featuring more than 100 performers, along opening ceremonies and a spectacular fireworks show.

Another fantastic way to spend NYE in Rhode Island is to take a Newport Majestic Cruise, complete with fabulous hors d’oeuvres, drinks, dancing and the usual champagne toast at midnight.

The Marriott Hotel located in downtown Providence will be holding the ultimate New Years Eve in Rhode Island experience including live music and dancing, plenty of tasty hors d’eouvres, and a cash bar, and guests will have access to the hotel’s Jazz Lounge which will also be providing live entertainment. In addition, there will be a delectable 3 course dinner and there’s a possibility a comedy show will follow. There will more than likely also be after party entertainment and of course champagne toast to welcome in the New Year. Another fantastic way to spend NYE is enjoying an evening at the Bluef in Grille which will include dinner for two at the award winning restaurant.
