2021 Glass Town Countdown

Date(s) - 12/31/2021 - 01/01/2022
10:00 pm - 1:00 am

Downtown Lancaster


Join your friends, family, and neighbors for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve celebration! Visit historic downtown Lancaster for a family-friendly street party where you will taste fantastic food and spirits at local restaurants and pubs, watch the ascent of the giant glass globe, and light up the sky with a spectacular fireworks show!

This event celebrates the importance of glass in Lancaster’s history as the community creates a beautiful piece of glass art for this fun party. The globe is a traveling piece of art until New Year’s Eve, when it rises high above Zane’s Square and rings in the new year. The event is completely free, but you can register online via Eventbrite.

To create an ornament to be displayed on the globe, sign up for a Glass Town Countdown ornament class here. These classes take place at the Ohio Glass Museum in Lancaster. You can also purchase an ornament online at the Ohio Glass Museum website or purchase an ornament in-person at the museum gift shop.
