12 New Year’s Eve Events to Check out in Ventura This Year

One of the most nostalgic days of the year is right around the corner. New Year’s Eve is all about celebrating the future year, but you can’t help but to reflect on the 364 days you’re leaving behind. It can be a hodgepodge of emotions but one feeling remains: hope for what 2023 will have in store. And we’re excited to celebrate the feeling of hope with you.

Ventura will be alight with celebrations and parties. The tough choice will be which New Year’s Eve party to go to! Or, maybe you’ll make the choice easier for yourself and stop by each one. Whatever you decide, we know you’ll have a hoot of a time here in town. Happy New Year from Ventura 🥳
