Update for 2020
The Battery is NOT holding its huge New Year’s Eve Bash in 2020, for obvious reasons.
However, there will be live music in The Plaza starting at 9 p.m. and fireworks over Truist Park at midnight — along with FREE parking for the evening.
The Battery has been vague about the NYE fireworks and has only promoted the private, ticketed events being held at its restaurants.
This is what the website says about New Year’s Eve:
The 12South Band and DJ Jammin’ John will keep the mood festive in the Plaza starting at 9 p.m., culminating with an aerial firework display over Truist Park at midnight. Parking is free in the public decks (Red, Purple and Green) starting at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31 until 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 1.
In order to provide a safe celebration for everyone, visitors are asked to observe public safety guidelines as well as the individual guidelines of retailers and restaurants.
Overall, it seems like a good year to celebrate at home. But if you live close to Truist Park and want to venture out, you can probably watch fireworks from one of the public areas at The Battery, or a location nearby, or perhaps even from one of the Battery parking decks.
Please be safe this holiday season!
The CDC has issued guidelines on how to have safer holiday celebrations during the 2020 season.

The Battery Atlanta will celebrate the New Year in style as 2019 fades into 2020, with its third annual New Year’s Eve Bash. The event is FREE to attend, and it doesn’t appear you need a ticket at all. Braves in-game host Mark Owens will emcee the entire evening of programming on December 31st, 2019. This is actually two FREE events — an “early innings” event for families with young children, followed by the “late innings” festivities for everyone else. The family-friendly early innings, for those wishing to ring in the New Year early, will start at 6 p.m. in the Plaza. The Heavy Hitters and BLOOPER will be on hand as well as David Girabaldi, a performance painter who transforms blank canvas in minutes. At 8 p.m., balloon baseballs will drop in celebration of the “New Year,” so the wee ones can ring in 2020 without pushing bedtime too far. The late innings festivities start at 9 p.m. The 12South Band and David Girabaldi will provide the entertainment from the Georgia Power Pavilion Stage. The midnight countdown will include pyrotechnics and 2020 will begin with a confetti and aerial fireworks display. At LAST YEAR’s NYE event, there was free parking available in all public parking decks (Red, Green and Purple Decks) starting at 4:00 p.m. We have not yet confirmed this detail for the 2019/20202 event — so stay tuned. Likewise, with the leave-your-car policy. Last year, anyone needing to leave a car at The Battery overnight, in order to get home safely, could do so. The rule was that it just had to be picked up by noon on New Year’s Day. Once we confirm these details, we’ll update for the current year.
