New Year’s Eve Events in Charlotte

A Story By

Can you believe there are only a few days left in this decade? With 2019 creeping up to an end, we all start to think about our New Year’s resolutions and the goals we want to set in this new “roarin’ 20’s” of a decade.

The 1920s were known for beautiful outfits, lavish parties, and crazy lifestyles, and we here at UNATION believe that 2020 shouldn’t be any different! To help you begin the year in style, we gathered up some of the best events happening in Charlotte this New Year’s Eve so you can start the new out right. 

Don’t worry, we found a fiesta for any age and every price range, so buckle up and get your dancin’ shoes ready for NYE in the Queen City!

Ready to head to the center of the city for an all-nighter full of fun? The annual Crawl ‘Til The Ball Falls is happening in the epicenter of uptown Charlotte and it’s calling your name!

This crawl is a great idea if you have a few friends who want to be in the middle of all the parties but without being tied down to one venue. 

All you have to do is pre-purchase a wristband that gets you into all the participating bars, cover free! Plus, they have amazing drink specials that won’t break the bank. If you like a little NYE surprise, they don’t release the participating locations until 24 hours before, which kind of leaves room for excitement and anticipation, right?! 

Registration starts at 6PM which is well before many other venues begin their NYE celebrations–so you know you’ll be getting a full night’s worth of partying under your belt.

Ready, set, crawl!

Calling all Millenials, front and center! Need we say more? The Biggest 90’s Party Ever might be the coolest get together happening in the Queen City this New Year’s Eve.

This event is hosted by COLORS Worldwide and let’s just be the first to tell you that these people know how to throw a par-tay. 

Head to the thrift store ASAP and find your best 90’s attire because there is a costume contest with a $100 prize. A DJ will be playing non-stop 90’s music all night long, and did we mention that it’s at one of CLT’s top venues, The Fillmore?

If you’re looking to ring in 2020 droppin’ it low to all the nostalgic music of the ’90s, this is the place to be.

🗓 DEC 31 | 8:30PM–1AM

Need a change of pace on the last night of the year? How about literally “running” into 2020? If you love to run (or ate too much during the holidays) the U.S. National Whitewater Center has got you covered with a 5K and a 10K distance race. Runners will start in 2019 and end in 2020. 

This is a family-friendly event, so any age is welcome to participate and join in on the fun. The course will be located all throughout the U.S. National Whitewater Center, which hosts multiple runs during all seasons of the year. 

So grab a headlamp, find some running shoes, and get ready to sprint into a new decade!

Who’s ready for the best views in the Queen City? If you’re more than prepared to spend NYE in high style, Nuvolé Rooftop TwentyTwo will be the one-stop-shop for the evening.

Admission includes a drink, hors d’oeuvres, a dessert station, and a midnight champagne toast! What else do you need to ring in the new year? Oh yeah, one of the best rooftop views in CLT! 

This swanky new lounge has floor to ceiling windows so you can enjoy the beautiful view from inside or out and the cocktail list includes all of the fun New Year’s Eve drinks you could ever imagine.

Remember to dress to impress too, you’ll want to look your best to bring in 2020 at Nuvolé!

If you haven’t heard about Southend’s newest hangout, then you’re in for a sweet surprise.

Lost & Found is the area’s newest cocktail bar and lounge with the most “Instagrammable” backgrounds to date. They boast a large array of beautifully made cocktails and has been the hippest place to be on the weekends in the Queen City. 

For their first NYE in Charlotte, Lost & Found will have a DJ spinning all night long with limited tickets available. The attire is “dress to impress,” especially if you want to get the best picture of the night.

These tickets will definitely sell out, so make sure you grab them now if you’re planning on NYE at the hottest spot in CLT!

🗓 DEC 31 | 9PM–2AM
