Ring in the New Year Downtown with Bank of Utica, the City of Utica and its Public Safety Departments

Join us as we celebrate the start of 2024 at the 4th Annual Bank of Utica New Year’s Eve event happening right outside of Bank of Utica on Genesee Street. 

12 . 31 . 2023

Starting at 7 PM

Where: On Genesee Street, between Bank Place and Devereux Street
When: Sunday, December 31, from 7:00 p.m.to 12:00 a.m. 
Who: Hosted by Bank of Utica’s Barry Sinnott, Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri, and Kari Puleo from the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce 

We're bringing back crowd favorites – nostalgic horse and carriage rides, local magician Leon Etienne, dancers from Butler-Sheehan School of Irish Dance, and fire dancers to light up Genesee Street! Bank of Utica’s windows will also showcase world-class aerialists and will feature the winners of our kid's Coloring Contest that's going on now! 

Cast your vote in the UPD/UFD Chili Cook-Off and enjoy beverages from Saranac Brewery and Utica Coffee served up by our favorite United Way volunteer baristas. Watch ice carving demonstrations, play some ice skee ball and ice corn hole and then take a picture on the ice throne. 

We're throwing in a bonfire this year that will keep us toasty throughout the night as we wait until the Bank of Utica tower counts down to midnight. Don’t miss the dazzling fireworks display when the clock strikes twelve. 

Full schedule to follow.
