OKC's New Year's Eve Celebration
December 31, 2022

Ring in the New Year at OKC’s largest family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration, Opening Night 2023, presented by MidFirst Bank and the Inasmuch Foundation. The fun starts at 7 p.m. on Dec. 31 at Bicentennial Park. 

Wristbands cost just $8 in advance and grant access to live entertainment throughout the evening. This includes music, a mural competition, and a children’s area with themed, hands-on art projects. You’ll find fun for everyone all night long.  

At midnight, our fireworks extravaganza will be an exuberant blend of pyrotechnics, music and celebration. The finale begins about 20 minutes before
midnight with live music, a light show, and plenty of excitement. At 11:58, the
Rising Ball begins its ascent, and the live countdown begins.   

Kickstart the evening by joining us for the Finale 5K! The race begins at 3pm!
