New Year's Eve Ball Drop 2023!

New Year's Eve Ball Drop is back in Downtown Salisbury!


It’s time to ring in the New Year right with the 9th annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, presented by Gillis Gilkerson.

Rev up those noisemakers and get ready for a night filled with live music from the AMP Studios, Wavvy Gravy, DJ B-Side and Marlee plus a ball drop and confetti at midnight! The event is on Friday, December 31, 2022 from 9 p.m. to just after midnight.  New Year’s Eve SBY Ball Drop is a free, all-ages, family-friendly event.  

This year's New Year’s Eve Ball Drop will be located back near the intersection of Main Street and N. Division Street, complete with a full stage, and a 4.5-foot-wide ball lit with thousands of LED lights. The outdoor stage will feature a jumbo-tron countdown screen plus confetti and the ball drop at midnight, lowered by the Salisbury Fire Department tower truck.  


Beer, wine and champagne will be available for purchase outside.  Warm drinks and snacks will also be available from local retailers and food trucks.  Free parking will be available in the parking garage.   

New Year’s Eve SBY Ball Drop is produced by Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District on behalf of The City of Salisbury. The event would not be possible without the support of our local sponsor Gillis Gilkerson.  


Very special thanks to the City of Salisbury, City of Salisbury Field Operations, Salisbury Police Department, Salisbury Fire Department, Mid-South Audio and all our volunteers!
