New Year’s Eve at the Arts Center was established in an effort to create an all age, family friendly, alcohol-free and artistic celebration to launch the New Year. It was also a fun way for the arts center to fulfill its mission “to create, stimulate and perpetuate the arts in northern Michigan.”

There are experiences in music, theatre, art and dance all under one roof, one night- the building is bursting with creative energy. Whether you prefer to participate in a hands-on workshop or just sit back and enjoy the entertainment- this event is for you! Participants can wander freely throughout the arts center,  Petoskey District Library’s Carnegie Building and new this year, Petoskey District Library, and choose among the many offerings for the evening. Performances and workshops are presented by CTAC’s instructors, Blissfest Music Organization and Petoskey District Library among others.
