For 26 years Rockport New Year’s Eve, Inc. (RNYE) has hosted a “small town, BIG celebration” consistently described as “simply amazing” by thousands of attendees who enjoy great music, fabulous performers, and rich variety at multiple venues within easy walking distance of each other in Downtown Rockport.  We look forward to doing it again on December 31, 2023.

Big events like this require many people who love to work side by side to create joy, fun, and an amazing experience for family, friends, the greater Cape Ann Community and beyond.  It all starts in the spring and continues right up to Dec. 31.  The work is both rewarding, and fun.
