Ring in the New Year in White Plains!

The White Plains New Year’s Eve Spectacular promises to be a fun, family-friendly event. All are encouraged to come downtown and ring in the New Year close to home with us in White Plains.

The City and the BID are pleased to announce White Plains Hospital as the Official Fireworks Sponsor of the New Year’s fireworks display. White Plains Hospital is marking its 125th anniversary in 2018, and is supporting the firework display to kick off the celebratory year ahead. 
White Plains Hospital will also be providing fleece gaitors (neck warmers) to the first 125 attendees at each entrance.

The White Plains New Year’s Eve celebration is large and a number of street closures are necessary. The attached map of downtown White Plains highlights the street closings as well as parking options for attendees. The City will begin closing streets in the event area at 1:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. Streets will re-open to vehicular traffic at approximately 3:00 a.m. on January 1st.

The event will be accessible via gated entry only. Four gates will be set up at the following locations:

  • Main Street at Church Street
  • Renaissance Square at Williams Street
  • Court Street at Martine Avenue
  • Martine Avenue at Mamaroneck Avenue

Please note:  No large bags will be permitted inside the event area and all bags are subject to search at the entry gates. We ask that all attendees plan ahead, leaving extra time to go through security before entering the event. In addition, the event will be a No Fly Zone for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (aka “drones”). These security precautions are intended for the safety of the public attending the event. 

New Year. Safe Ride. We are pleased to announce that for the 14th consecutive year, Heineken USA is partnering with the City of White Plains and the White Plains BID on its New Year. Safe Ride. program, created to help local residents get home safely on New Year’s Eve. Over the past 13 years, the program has provided free and safe rides home to over 4,500 Westchester County residents of legal drinking age.
