New Year’s Eve Celebrations in Williamsburg, VA

Ready to ring in the New Year in America’s Historic Triangle? Take a look at what’s planned for New Year’s Eve Celebrations in Williamsburg, VA.

Christmas Town at Busch Gardens

Make your way to Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town for a dazzling holiday spectacle, complete with fantastic live shows, more than 5 million twinkling lights and delicious treats like peppermint fudge hot chocolate. Of course, a few of your favorite Busch Gardens attractions will be open for one last thrill of 2019!

Note: The Park does close at 10:00 pm on New Year’s Eve. Still, strolling through Christmas Town is a great way to spend the last day of 2019.

Colonial Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg offers several New Year’s Eve celebrations in Williamsburg to choose from! Ring in the New Year in style with the Regency Room’s chefs and service staff at their annual Regency Gala! Enjoy a six-course gala menu paired with a selection from our 350-bottle award-winning wine list, followed by a midnight Champagne toast with live entertainment. The Roaring 20s-style celebrations begin at 8:30 pm. $250 per person inclusive of tax and gratuity. Reservations are required.

Also at the Regency Room is the Regency’s New Year’s Eve Dinner. Not as upscale as the Gala, the Regency Room encourages guests to dress to the Roaring 20s theme or don elegant evening wear. A five-course dinner with paired wines is available for $145 per person plus tax. Further, the event includes live music and dancing.

If you’d like to end 2019 with Thomas Jefferson, you absolutely can at Colonial Williamsburg. Dine with Mr. Jefferson himself and other notable historic figures on December 7, 2019 at Kings Arm Tavern. This four-course event has open seating; no private tables. Reservations must be made in advance by calling 1-844-204-8848. $160.00 per person. Your dinner with America’s historic figures begins promptly at 6:30 pm!

Hogmanay at Hennage Auditorium

Celebrate Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve) with John Turner and Kelly Kennedy. Guests can hear and sing local songs and celebrate Scotland’s traditional music. From 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm on New Year’s Eve, this event costs $8 per person. Moreover, note that event requires a separate ticket purchase at the Hennage Auditorium.

Hair of the Dog 5K

This fun Williamsburg tradition returns January 1, 2020 from 10 am to 12 pm at Merchant’s Square! Volunteer or participate in one of the five available races: a competitive 5K race, 5K walking category, fun and festive formal wear race division (pajamas allowed), weight challenge division and Kids’ Fun Run. Celebrate the New Year with competition, fun, and exercise outdoors! Also, note that a portion of the net proceeds raised from this event will go to the assigned charity partner. 

In addition, all 5K runners receive a shirt, custom medal, post-race refreshments, and a festive awards ceremony. Kids’ Fun Run participants receive a finisher medal and post-race refreshments.

PG-500 Block Party

Join Amber Ox, The Hound’s Tale, and the The Hound’s Tale Corner BARKery in celebrating New Year’s with a family-friendly block party!
