Cary New Year’s Celebrations

Are you looking for a way to celebrate the end of 2021 and the start of the new year? A year ago all gatherings were canceled. Even the ball drop in New York City was only allowed limited attendance. We are happy to see that many venues in Cary are moving forward with New Year’s Eve plans for this Friday night. If you haven’t made your reservations yet, check out our list of Cary-based events and call or reserve today!

Of course, while events are back for New Year’s Eve 2021, please exercise caution when dining out and follow whatever protocols are in place at the venues you choose to visit, for your safety and the safety of all staff working this holiday season. Many venues may require proof of vaccination.

Unless otherwise noted, all events take place Friday, December 31st, 2021.
