Raise a glass with us and celebrate the New Year in true Savannah style at the Savannah Waterfront Association’s 5th Annual “Up the Cup” countdown sponsored by Wet Willie’s. The New Year’s Eve celebration takes place Sunday, December 31st beginning at 2 PM on historic River Street.
Live bands and DJs will rock Rousakis Plaza with a fantastic light show while we countdown the final hours of 2017. G100’s Mia Mance and Rewind 107.9’s Stacy Scott will be on hand to lead us into the New Year in style as the 6-foot “to-go” cup rises on River Street. Andrew Gill & Jim Marshall kick-off the live music on the Rousakis Stage at 2:30PM Sunday afternoon. Great music continues with Keith & Ross at 4PM and Junkyard Angel at 8PM. DJ Gabe will also be spinning tunes throughout the afternoon and evening. “Up the Cup is our fun way of toasting the New Year. New York may have a crystal ball, and Atlanta has a big peach, but only in Savannah can you get a drink in a roadie cup and enjoy a beautiful evening on the waterfront,” says Victoria Smith, Executive Director for the Savannah Waterfront Association. The New Year’s Eve “Up the Cup” countdown clock will be displayed at 8:00 pm until we hit the midnight hour, followed by a spectacular fireworks display and champagne toast courtesy of Wet Willie’s. The New Year’s Eve Up the Cup Countdown Celebration is hosted by the Savannah Waterfront Association and proudly sponsored by Wet Willies.
