Stone Mountain Park Kids’ Early New Year’s Eve Celebration

This family-friendly event lets you ring in 2023 and still get to bed relatively early.

The early countdown begins at 8:59 p.m.

At the stroke of 9 p.m., snow and fireworks usher in the early New Year.

Tickets are $39.95 for ages 12 and older and $34.95 for children ages 3 to 11.


Indigo Girls with Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

The concert was supposed to happen on New Year’s Eve last year, but was postponed.

They’ve been called one of the finest folk duos of all time.

Amy Ray and Emily Saliers perform with the Atlanta Symphony at Atlanta Symphony Hall.

The show begins at 8 p.m. and ends before midnight.

There are only a handful of tickets available on ground level, but there are a number of tickets as low as $39.50 per ticket (plus fees) in the loge and balcony.

Georgia Aquarium New Year’s Celebration

Unfortunately this one only gets an “honorable mention” because this year’s event is already sold out.

But plan ahead to get your tickets early for next year’s event.

General admission tickets are $125 and include “light bites” from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m., four alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink tickets, live music, a midnight countdown, access to the main galleries until 11:30 p.m. and a midnight snack.
