New Year's Eve in Saugerties

Saugerties will host its fourth annual New Year’s Eve celebration in the Village on Sunday, December 31 at 10 p.m. Initiated in 2014 by police chief Joe Sinagra and mayor William Murphy as a way for Sawyers to “stay local, stay safe” on the big night, it also helps small businesses and local restaurants keep diners, shoppers and revelers close to home, rather than lose them to nearby Kingston’s big New Year’s Eve shindig.

Expect to see performances from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and a countdown video and ball-drop at midnight at the corner of Main and Partition Streets. Many of the restaurants and bars will plan special New Year’s Eve menus and offer specials. Some streets will be closed from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Attendees are advised to dress warmly and bring a folding chair to sit on. More information is available by visiting http://village.saugerties.ny.us.
