Editor’s Note: In 2018, The Branding Project announced changes to Marietta Square’s Winter Wonderland events and experiences, including the removal of the ice-skating rink in Glover Park and the cancelation of the New Year’s Eve event in Marietta Square.

There are many other events planned at the Marietta Square as 2021 comes to an end, including Red Hare – The Still On The Square New Year’s Eve, The Strand Theater’s The NYE Show: The Music of Queen and Bowie, Friday night Karaoke at wr Social House, New Year’s Eve at Mac’s Chophouse, and more…



The last New Year’s Eve celebration at Marietta Square took place in 2017 and began at 6pm on Sunday, December 31, 2017.  The celebration featured an early celebration for the kids and a second celebration at midnight.

Family activities began at 5pm, with a drop at 7pm.  At 8pm, the evening festivities began, with a celebration at the stroke of midnight and ended at 1am.
