It's almost time for 2016! With that being said, check out some awesome NYE events going on in Baton Rouge! This list will be updated as we receive more events leading up to New Year's Eve.

Red Stick Revelry

One of Baton Rouge's most popular New Year's Eve events is the Red Stick Revelry. The Red Stick Revelry is a free, outdoor and all day event that includes live music, activities, food and much more!

Beginning at 11 a.m., children will be able to enjoy hands-on, arts and crafts and signing with Mayor Kip Holden as the Red Stick is raised into the sky, where it will sit until the countdown to  New Years begins. 

Live musical performances begin at 7 PM with Sheriff Bud Torres and the Posse, and at 9 PM with Phat Hat, both performing at the Crest Stage in Galvez Plaza. At 11:59 PM, the Red Stick drops in North Boulevard Town Square to ring in 2016 with a fireworks show over the Mississippi River.
