New Year’s Eve in Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, & Bradenton

Sarasota Pineapple DropNew Year’s Eve is quickly approaching! Where will you ring in the New Year? Take a look at some of the New Year’s Eve events taking place in the Lakewood Ranch-Sarasota-Bradenton area.

Lakewood Ranch

New Year’s Eve at the Polo Grill! After enjoying a fabulous meal and complimentary champagne it’s time to head on over to the bar and lounge for some music and dancing. The Polo Grill will have their 90” projection screen up and running so no one will miss the ball drop at midnight. The Polo Grill New Year’s Eve Celebration is $70/person and reservations  are strongly recommended. Call (941) 782-0899 ext. 2  for all the details.

Want to stay away from Lakewood Ranch Main Street this New Year’s Eve? Then head over to the Ranch Grill for their New Year’s Eve Bash at the Ranch. This $75/person event includes buffet, desserts, DJ, dancing, hats, noisemakers, and….OPEN BAR! Tickets are limited and reservations are required so call today at 941-756-9400.


Of course, it wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without the Bradenton New Year’s Eve party on Old Main Street. The street will be closed from 3 pm – 1 am with thousands of people expected to ring in the New Year! There will be live music by Hot Ice, food and drinks provided by street vendors, and of course, all the local bars will remain open until the wee hours of the morning.

Want to stay in Bradenton but want something a little more quaint than Old Main Street? Then try Pier 22…they are having live music from The Arch from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Complimentary champagne toast and free party favors.


Of course, downtown Sarasota will play host to the very popular Downtown Sarasota Pineapple Drop. Hey, if New York is going to drop an apple every year it just makes sense that Sarasota would drop something a little more tropical…like a pineapple. The pineapple drop has become a popular tradition in Sarasota and this year will be no exception. The celebration in downtown Sarasota actually begins during the day with Carnival starting at 2pm which is great fun for the whole family. By 6 pm there will be both live music and DJ’s spinning tunes. Food and drinks will be available from both street vendors as well as the local bars and restaurants.

Want to stay away from downtown Sarasota? Then head over to the Gulf Gate  New Year’s Eve Ball Drop. The party starts at 9:00 pm at Chester’s Reef and the Hair of the Dog Saloon with DJ’s, drink specials and a 500 ft. ball drop at midnight.

Looking for something a little different? How about the Book of Beneva New Year’s Eve Celebration at The Players Theatre, Sarasota, FL.  Enjoy an evening of playful entertainment that includes plenty of adult language and content. Tickets are $25 and reservations are strongly recommended!

Whatever you decide to do this New Year’s Eve we hope you have fun, but most importantly we hope you remain safe. Remember, don’t drink and drive…have a designated driver or just call a taxi!
