Glass Town Countdown

Join your friends and family for an unforgettable New Year's Eve celebration!

To celebrate the importance of glass in Lancaster’s history, the community creates a beautiful piece of glass art throughout the year and comes together for a fun party on New Year’s Eve!

Enjoy the free, family-friendly street party at Zane Square in downtown Lancaster where you can explore local shops and restaurants. Drink delicious hot chocolate or carry a drink within the Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area; then capture the memory with a photo next to the glass globe. 

Make sure to stick around till midnight as we start the new year off with a bang– a fabulous fireworks show!
