The Battery Atlanta will celebrate the New Year in style as 2021 fades into 2022, with its annual New Year’s Eve Bash. The event is FREE to attend, and you do not need a ticket.
Braves in-game host Mark Owens will emcee the entire evening of programming on December 31st, 2021.
This is actually two FREE events — an “early innings” event for families with young children, followed by the “late innings” festivities for everyone else who wants to stay up to ring in the new year at midnight.
The family-friendly early innings will start at 6 p.m. in the Plaza. It includes music from The Lucky Band – named ‘THE face of kindie music’ by the Washington Post.
Just before 8 p.m., there will be a countdown and balloon baseballs will drop in celebration of the “New Year,” so the wee ones can ring in 2022 without pushing bedtime too far.
The late innings festivities start at 9 p.m. The 12South Band will provide the entertainment from the Georgia Power Pavilion Stage. Kids are welcome to stay for the late Innings as well, as everything is family-friendly.
All entertainment in the Plaza is free for the public to enjoy. Food and drink is available for purchase at any of the restaurants, and mobile beverage carts will be in the Plaza area.
The midnight countdown will include pyrotechnics and 2022 will begin with confetti and a spectacular aerial fireworks display.
