Celebrate a New Year in Downtown Alameda

Let’s celebrate a new year! Meet up with family and friends at a favorite restaurant in Downtown Alameda, catch a movie, or extend the evening by ringing in the new year at one of the district’s many gathering spots. There’s even family fun for the kids.

Businesses are open with care… care for customers, staff, and the community. Celebrate responsibly with us and kindly wear a face covering while attending indoor activities.

Featured Activities:

New Year’s Jokin’ Eve @ The Local
Let’s put an end to the madness of 2021 with a bit of dry, calculated satire. This all ages show features comedian Scott Capurro, a regular on Alice Radio with Sarah & Vinnie.

New Years Eve with Eddie Pepitone @ Alameda Comedy Club
Celebrate New Year’s Eve with cult-comic Eddie Pepitone. A force of nature on stage, Eddie is hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckart Tolle.

Glitz & Glamour Gala @ Alley & Vine
Book your table today for an Old Hollywood-era Glitz & Glamour Gala. Enjoy a 5-course menu, live music, party favors, and a champagne toast at midnight. (An earlier seating is available too.)

Afro Gatsby NYE @ @ Karibu Wine Lounge
Curated 4-course dinner and wine pairing menu, live Jazz, a live DJ, and a complimentary midnight toast!

New Year’s Day Party @ Swings and Wings
Start the New Year on January 1st by having fun as a family! Breakfast, music, photo booth, yummy treats, and kids playspace.
