Charlotte New Years Eve 2015

Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Charlotte hosts some of the best New Years Eve events in the state if North Carolina, with visitors from abroad as well as locals from around the city and wider state area heading to the capital to join the party. Charlotte is one of the growing number of US cities to hold a First Night event, and it is this that provides the focal point to the countdown celebrations across the city.

This isn't probably a venue that you would place top of your list if visiting the United States for the new year, but there are often pleasant surprises to be found in the most unexpected places so it's well worth a look, with the local people renowned for the friendly welcome extended to visitors, and the fireworks among the best around.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


The focus in Charlotte at New Years is on family friendly entertainment, and this is epitomised by the First Night event, which acts at the city's official NYE event. Held in the uptown region, and taking place for the 5th time this year, First Night features live music, dancers, artists, comedians, jugglers and much more, with entertainment to appeal to all ages and of course the obligatory fireworks at midnight. Headline act this year is the 11 piece band Sol Fusion.

Away from the main event, many of the city's hotels, bars and restaurants hold their own events, and there's plenty to choose from but make sure you get your reservation in early as all the top events WILL sell out.

One big party that looks like a great night is Rich & Bennett's NYE Bash 2015 at the Phoenix Nightclub (I'm assuming it's a lot nicer than the Peter Kay version!) The night includes several bars, VIP lounge and live DJS - tickets here.

There is always live music to look out for in Charlotte, and this year one of the big new years eve events is the Avett Brothers playing live at the city's Time Warner Cable Arena venue, supported by Shovels & Rope. The show gets underway at 8pm, and you can buy tickets online here.

There is also a serious New Years Eve party at the Westin Charlotte, famous for it's holiday events. This year the party includes live chart music in the Venetian Ballroom, salsa and merengue in the appropriately named La Rumba Ballroom and a VIP lounge with unlimited food and champagne.

For your new year's eve culinary choices, either as precursor to heading off to enjoy the First Night party or just for a quiet night with family or friends then there are plenty of excellent choices in town too. The top vegan option is the famous Luna's Living Kitchen (which I simply have to visit asap!) while Mimosa Grill, Bentley's, Alexander Michael's and The King's Kitchen are all highly recommended. Find all the options here.
