New Year’s Eve is often a holiday where families feel limited in their choices for celebration spots. Most venues cater to the adult crowds on this night, leaving families to celebrate at home. Thankfully, each year Atlanta is offering more and more ‘low-key’ events catered specifically to families. Here are my top 5 family New Year’s Eve celebrations taking place throughout the city! 

Medieval Times: The Lawrenceville Medieval Times location will have a New Year’s Eve show open to all ages – making it the perfect spot to celebrate the holiday with older kids. Packages include tours, dinner, music and dancing.  

Noon Year’s Eve at Avalon:  The Hotel at Avalon is hosting a family-friendly party with live music, face painting, crafts, and a giant balloon drop when the clock strikes noon. Tickets can be purchased on the official event website

New Year’s Bubble Bash: Children’s Museum of Atlanta never disappoints when it comes to New Year’s Eve celebrations. Described as a dance party with bubble-wrap fireworks, this is the place to be if you have young children. They will be offering two countdowns to ring in 2019 – one at noon and the other at 3:30 pm. Act fast if you are interested in this bash, tickets often sell out and must be purchased in advance.

Kid’s Early New Year’s Eve Celebration: Children of all ages will enjoy the New Year’s Eve celebration at Stone Mountain. Ring in the new year at 9 pm with snow and fireworks and then stay for live music, dancing, and family-fun activities.  Location and ticket information can be found here.

Noon Year’s Eve: Celebrate the start of 2019 at Fernbank with Atlanta’s biggest party animals! Activities start at 9 am and include games, music, and an appearance by the Georgia Bubbleman!  And you will not want to miss the noon countdown, where over 2,000 balloons will cascade over the world’s largest dinosaurs! This event will sell out – visit Fernbank’s event page for details and ticket options.
