CHATTANOOGA'S WEST VILLAGE TO HOST FREE FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEW YEAR'S EVE STREET FESTIVAL AND CELEBRATION
The inaugural New Year’s Eve in West Village is a perfect time for you to become acquainted with the newly revitalized area between MLK & 7th on Chestnut and Pine. Lights are twinkling and the spirit of the street is changing as the West Village brings a European-style experience to the area.
On New Year’s Eve, West Village will be filled with activities and attractions to help Chattanooga ring in the New Year. Businesses such as Pinkberry, Peet's Coffee, Innside Restaurant, Elea Blake, and Alimentari will be open late for the occasion. Get an exclusive sneak peek into the new clothing store, Antibes and Citron et Sel, a taco and tequila bar. Visitors will enjoy a live DJ and other festivities. Food trucks including Chatter Box, California Burrito, and Dem Boys will line the streets. Cocktails and craft beer will also be available for purchase.
A giant screen on the Westin Chattanooga’s mirrored surface will play a special, Chattanooga themed laser light show each hour throughout the evening until 10 p.m. Following the last laser show, guests will enjoy a live feed of the Times Square celebration up to the ball drop.
Family-friendly activities and attractions including face painting, popcorn, hot chocolate, frozen yogurt, street entertainers and more will be available from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There is even a “not-so-late ball drop" at 7:30 p.m., early enough for even the youngest partygoers to enjoy. Following the “not-so-late ball drop”, concessions, music, entertainment and festivities go until 12:30 a.m.
“West Village offers a unique European-style experience to Chattanooga,” says Jay Raynor with DeFoor Brothers. “I hope this festival brings the community together. There’s a lot to celebrate and enjoy.”
Admission is FREE!
