Downtown Wyandotte will be the host for Rockin’ NYE 2021. Rockin’ NYE is one of, if not the largest, New Year’s Eve celebration in Metro Detroit. Plus, we are adding two stages and expanding the size of the heated tent. Local bands and DJ Money Mic will entertain the crowd inside the tent and outside on the stage.

A Special Guest will rock the stage inside the heated tent along with another great Detroit native alternative rock band, Sponge. The bands will head to the outdoor stage to ring in the New Year at the Rockin' NYE Ball Drop! More bands to be announced. There is a $15 concert ticket required for the heated tent. Everyone must be 21+ to enter. Outdoor concerts and events are free.

The event’s main attraction is the one of kind New Year’s Eve ball, with color changing and chasing LED lights. The evening will culminate with a Time Square style ball drop at 9 p.m. for families and again at the stroke of midnight.

A Kids heated tent will have FREE kids activities which will include; face painting, crafts, photo booth and games. Rockin’ NYE will also have food trucks, indoor and outdoor bars.


Vin Dombroski, frontman of Sponge, is a Detroit native that wandered into Wyandotte in Fall of 2016. He saw the potential of hosting a yearly New Year's Eve event. He partnered with 360 Event Productions and together they approached the City of Wyandotte about hosting a large scale New Year's Eve event on Biddle Ave! The City of Wyandotte, Mayor Joe Peterson and the Wyandotte DDA were in full support to bring this new and exciting event to Wyandotte. The first year over 10,000 people gathered in the streets to celebrate! Sponge actively performs around the US. While on the road, Vinnie reaches out to fellow rockers and invites them to perform at Rockin' NYE. In 2018, Wally Palmer of The Romantics was a special guest. 2019, Brett Scallions, frontman of Fuel joined Sponge onstage to perform all the hits! 2020 To be Announced.
