Isn't it kind of hard to believe that 2021 is almost over?  It seems like this year has flown past!  Of course, they could have a lot to do with the fact that 2020 seemed to drag on and on and on...

Even though you've had a year to think about it, you're still not sure how you are going to celebrate the arrival of 2022?  We want to help you with that!  We've put together a list of "can't miss" New Years' Eve parties and events throughout Maine.

Keeping in mind that everyone's idea of a NYE celebration is different and that many people want to celebrate with their younger kids, our list features a variety of events.  Parties at bars / nightclubs where you're expected to dress-to-impress, more relaxed events featuring live music, and family friendly events.
