Famously Hot New Year Columbia, SC

Please RSVP for free tickets asap @ https://www.famouslyhotnewyear.com/tickets/

Famously Hot New Year is THE place to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the capital city. It’s a street festival, it’s a concert, but most importantly it’s a party.

In its third year, Famously Hot New Year 2014 is going to be bigger and better. Enjoy great food from our street vendors while Weaving the Fate, ZZ Ward, and world-famous Kool & the Gang keep the party going late into the night. Mayor Steve Benjamin will lead us in counting down to the new year and at the stroke of midnight, the sky behind the State House will light up with the largest fireworks exhibition in the two Carolinas.

                                           In the middle of downtown

The celebration will be held on Columbia’s Main Street between Gervais and Lady Streets—right in front of the South Carolina Statehouse.

VolunteerFamously Hot New Year is the BEST NEW YEARS party in the Southeast! It wouldn’t be possible without support from a fantastic Volunteer Team. This year, we need about 250 volunteers to ensure partygoers have fun and stay safe in a clean and festive environment. We’ve created several Volunteer Team assignments and shifts.

    I'm going to be by the stage around 9:40 to introduce members. I will be at the Marriott after the countdown in the lobby area.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
