Get excited to ring in the new year in OKC! Pick up some bubbles and take-out from your favorite local restaurant and ring in 2022 at home or venture out for a change of scenery. Oklahoma City has several ways to celebrate the new year that won't stress the post-Christmas budget.


Opening Night

Ring in the new year with your favorite Oklahoma City New Year's Eve event, Opening Night. This year's event includes live music, mural competitions and a children's area with themed, hands-on art projects! Make sure to stay until midnight for the fireworks extravaganza, which will be a blend of pyrotechnics, music and celebration.


Union Station Illumination

Head to Scissortail Park and admire the twinkling holiday lights on Union Station. While you're there, take a stroll through the park then stop by Social Capital for dinner and drinks, or homemade ice cream if the kids are in tow and take advantage of the expansive patio space. 


Holiday Brews

From traditional lagers to famous sours, Oklahoma City has a diverse beer scene to captivate every audience, no matter the individual taste. Stop by one of the local breweries and try a special holiday edition brew! Vanessa House is rolling out festive cookie-infused stout beers all December long, so you'll want to visit more than once—your taste buds will thank you.


OKC Thunder Game

This year, the Oklahoma City Thunder are playing at home against the New York Knicks on New Year’s Eve. If you're looking to venture out of the house, or head to one of OKC's beloved sports bars to catch the action. Thunder up!


Bricktown Comedy Club
