Austin, Texas, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Austin Capitol Building

Austin is the state capital of the huge state of Texas and as such lay their claim to the top New Year party with their own iconic event - ANY is the simple acronym for Austin New Year, the public party and celebration held each year on Auditorium Shores with an eclectic offering of family friendly entertainment with live music, food and drink aplenty and of course the spectacular fireworks display.

There may be other larger parties in Texas over the new year period, most notably the Big D NYE in Dallas and the public parties in Houston but the residents of Austin can hold their own with a range of festivites to appeal to all age groups and tastes.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

The big event is the annual ANY, bringing locals and visitors alike to the city's famous Auditorium Shores (South 1st Street and Riverside Drive area) for the evening. This is an alcohol free event to increase the appeal to families, and attracts in excess of 20,000 visitors each year.

The event, this year named New Year 2015, gets underway at 5pm and includes a full evening of entertainment, with artworks, film screenings and live music. We'll bring you the full lineup as soon as we have it. Perhaps somewhat strangely the fireworks finale is actually at 10pm, meaning the event is wrapped up by 10.30 - I guess it means people can go see in the new year with the family and firends elsewhere but it is certainly a little unusual to not save the fireworks for midnight!

Away from the main municipal event, the city of Austin provides a range of events for all tastes with the bars, hotels, clubs and restaurants all throwing themselves into the occasion with great enthusiasm.

In the bars and clubs of Austin you'll find plenty of parties worth looking out for too - we'll provide our top recommendations and ticket details a little nearer the time so please check back.

For those looking for somewhere to dine out, whether as the main party or a precursor to hitting the town, then Austin has plenty of options to choose from too. Top rated eateries include the Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill, Swift's Attic and the Franklin Barbecue, with veggie options at Maoz Vegetarian and The Steeping Room. See the full range of restaurants here.
