Kansas City New Year’s Eve Events

There are a lot of great ways to welcome in the New Year, especially in Kansas City. With the Christmas festivities winding down but the cheerful spirit still lingering, New Year’s Eve events in Kansas City pop up in every district. Wherever you are — Crossroads, Westport, Country Club Plaza — you’ll be able to find something fun to do when the ball drops.

But, how do you choose where to go? Which Kansas City New Year’s Eve event is going to give you the best time? While you have plenty to choose from, there is no better way to end this year and begin the new one than at Parkway Social Kitchen.

What to do on New Year’s Eve in Kansas City

Why Parkway? There are so many reasons. Our mission is food with a sense of community, and that’s what you’re looking for in a good Kansas City NYE event. This holiday is about celebrating what you have while look forward to what’s to come. Of all the things you have, community matters most — no matter who you are. Parkway gets that.

Parkway’s Kansas City New Year’s Eve event is a chance to celebrate your community. Our regular dinner menu — with some holiday specials — will be served during dinner hours. If you’ve been in to Parkway for a meal, you already have something mouthwatering on your mind. If you still haven’t visited us on the corner of Jefferson Street and Ward Parkway, then you’re missing out. Our elevated take on traditional comfort food is perfect for a New Year’s Eve party, especially on a cold December night. Warm up with our renowned stuffed tater tots before filling up with a hearty entrée. There’s something on the menu for everyone.

The night’s just getting started with dinner. Later in the evening, Parkway will transition from dinner to DJ. Hang out upstairs and enjoy the bar menu, or head downstairs to the Scarlet Room, our live music and event space. Parkway will stay open through and after the ball drops at midnight. From dinner into the New Year, Parkway is providing great food, drinks and community. Of all the great Kansas City New Year’s Eve events, this is the one you can’t miss.
