Eureka Springs New Year's EveWhy have a Eureka Springs New Year’s Eve? Eureka Springs, AR is a happening place all year long with festivals, events, concerts, and more – so why should New Year’s be any different? It’s not!

It wouldn’t be Eureka Springs if there wasn’t something happening or brewing for the near future and, this year, the Eureka Springs New Year’s Eve boasts two different events: the New Years Eve Ballroom Blitz at the Basin Park Hotel and Swing in the New Year at the Crescent Hotel and Spa!

The New Years Eve Ballroom Blitz is the annual return of a very popular Eureka Springs New Year’s Eve celebration. This gala event begins at 8pm and includes the live music of Arkansas’ own party band Red Ambition! A non stop, top floor party, the New Years Eve Ballroom Blitz is held upstairs in the Basin Park Hotel’s Barefoot Ballroom and will include party favors, snacks, and a midnight countdown with champagne! Great fun.

Tickets are only $25 and can be purchased online.

Swing in the New Year bills itself as “Classy, Upscale, Decadent, & Sexy.” Held at the Crescent Hotel & Spa, this new celebration hopes to become an annual event, featuring the classy elegance of an old-school, 1940′s era supper club with the excitement and celebration of New Year’s Eve. Live music and dance by Swing and a Miss and MelonLight Studios begins at 9pm with a champagne toast at the stroke of midnight. The party gets started at 8pm with seatings every quarter hour for the four-course meal, which includes:

1st Course – choice of either Soup or Salad
