As 2018 draws to a close and the New Year readies to come roaring in, Great America is prepping to offer a brand-new, family-friendly way to ring in 2019. During New Year’s Eve at WinterFest, Bay Area families will find an all-ages party full of traditional NYE festivities, plus plenty of surprises—and all the fun and excitement of a Great America WinterFest visit!
On Dec. 31, bring the whole family for an exciting mash-up of New Year celebrations and WinterFest enchantment. From 5 – 9 p.m., your crew can enjoy all the fun of Great America, including up to 31 rides and 10 live shows. Then at 9 p.m., gather beneath our 65-foot-tall tree for a 9 o’clock New Year’s countdown. Families with little ones will be able to count down to 2019 three hours earlier than normal—chanting “3, 2, 1” in sync with those out on the East Coast. Don’t miss the fireworks spectacular at 9 p.m.!
Then for the older crowd, the New Year’s Eve party continues until midnight with live DJs and bands throughout the park from 10 p.m. – midnight. As 12 o’clock draws closer, join us for a big midnight countdown in Celebration Plaza with party favors and a champagne toast (for those of-age, of course).
Clear your calendars now for our 100-acre New Year’s Eve party on Monday, Dec. 31, and ring in the New Year with us at California’s Great America! You won’t find a cooler way to “coast” into 2019 than by celebrating New Year’s Eve at WinterFest.
