The Drop Motor City NYE

The Drop, Motor City NYE 2017, will once again illuminate the Detroit skyline Saturday, December 31. Inspired by New Year’s Eve celebrations around the world, The Drop is a free urban celebration, which will convene Detroiters and visitors far and wide for the chance to ring in 2017 together. The outdoor event will be held from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Campus Martius and Cadillac Square.

The highlight of The Drop, Motor City NYE is a unique Detroit-themed ball drop. A grand 7-foot glittering “D” mounted on an 8-foot glowing sphere will descend, not once, but twice during the event. The “D” will drop once for children and families – the Kids’ Drop – at 6:30 p.m., and again for the main event, just seconds before midnight.

The Drop, Motor City NYE starts at 4 p.m., well before the countdown to the New Year begins. Campus Martius and Cadillac Square will be enlivened with live music and a plethora of activities and games. Guests can enjoy warm food, cold refreshments, and cocktails (21+) prepared by local food trucks and restaurants.
