What's New for this Year's Winter's Eve?

The 19th Annual Winter's Eve at Lincoln Square is just 26 days away, and the Lincoln Square BID has been busy securing talent, lining up restaurants for the food tastings, and making sure New York's largest holiday festival is the most fun celebration yet! 

Many of our favorite restaurants, entertainers, and musical acts are returning to help us enliven the streets of this special Upper West Side area, but what's new to the event this year is also a real treat that you won't want to miss. 

This year, two new local restaurants that have joined our amazing Lincoln Square food scene as part of The Shops at Columbus Circle's Restaurant & Bar Collection, Bluebird London and Momofuku Noodle Bar, will participate in the Winter's Eve Outdoor Food Tastings at the Time Warner Center location. Click here to see all of the food tasting participants who have signed up so far!

For some notable and new entertainment this year: Judy Collins will host our Tree Lighting Ceremony as the Master of Ceremonies--featuring Arlo Gurthrie, the Young People's Chorus of NYC, and the Met Opera; The Nashville Attitude and Theo Croker 'Afrosonic' will perform at Richard Tucker Park; Maurice 'Mobetta' Brown will perform at the American Folk Art Museum; families can enjoy Mister G at Kids' Central at Raymour & Flanigan; Lucy Yeghiazayan will perform in The Shops at Columbus Circle, presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center; Combo Chimbita will put on a show at the David Rubenstein Atrium; artists from Drawn Together will roam the festivities offering free digital caricatures to attendees; Andrea Beeman "The Enchantress of Bioluminosity" will wow passersby with her LED dance; and so much more! Click here to see more entertainment, including music and dance, lined up for Winter's Eve. Click here to see Kid's activities and entertainment.
