The Motor City New Year’s Eve celebration, including The Drop and the Kids’ Drop, is the culmination of the ideas and passion of four team members who all either live or own a business in the city of Detroit and see an unmet need and opportunity in the midst of Detroit’s continuing renaissance. This Motor City New Year’s Eve team is proud to bring Detroit and its metropolitan area a proper venue for celebrating the coming New Year with style, substance, and a healthy dose of that famous spirit of Detroit.

And the team dedicates the Motor City New Year’s Eve celebration to that spirit of Detroit and you, the reveler. It’s your event. Join us this New Year’s Eve in celebration of a New Year for a New Detroit!

During the Drop and the Kids’ Drop, the D-Burst sculpture is lowered from the top of the Chase Tower, with the historic Guardian and Penobscot buildings providing a breathtaking background. These historic buildings provide a link to Detroit’s proud past, while the D-Burst evokes a bright New Year and even brighter future. Visually inspired by the excitement of an exploding firework, the D-Burst was designed by Detroit-based artists, the Nordin Brothers.

Additionally, the Motor City New Year’s Eve team believes that there is no better place to celebrate the spirit of Detroit than in the spiritual heart of the city, its award-winning Campus Martius Park, where people of all ages, colors, and creeds gather from the Detroit metropolitan area and beyond.
