Celebrate New Year’s in Yosemite National Park
There’s more to Yosemite than great camping and exploring nature. At the end of the year, you can celebrate in one of two ways.

Snacks and games will be available. At 9:00 p.m., kids of all ages can enjoy the balloon drop. Tickets are $67 for adults and $34 for children 12 and under.
For something finer and more luxurious, choose the elegant black tie affair at The Ahwahnee with a six course meal, live music, dancing, and a toast at midnight for $243 per person. You’ll be able to ring in the New Year in style.
