The Club 90s Stage presents “Club 2000s” as DJ Jeffery spins anthems from Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Panic! At The Disco, Outkast, The Killers, Usher, Beyonce and more. The Plaza Stage will feature the “130 Club” with DJ’s Pootiecat and JME Lee spinning hip-hop and R&B - including Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Tierra Whack, Childish Gambino, The Weeknd, Kaytranada and more.

Hance Park will be transformed into a New Year’s party by The Walter Show and art installations with lighting by Western Productions.

And of course there will be fireworks at midnight to welcome in 2022.
