Community New Years Eve Celebration!

Kick off a year-long series of activities to celebrate Batavia's 100th Birthday

The city of Batavia is turning 100 years old and we want to celebrate as a community on New Years Eve!  Come down for amazing musical entertainment from Broadway, free open skate at Faletti Arena, community bon fire, delicious eats from Michelle’s Catering (the gals with the pink trucks!) and Batavia’s Original.  Kids carnival, warm and cold weather fun for the whole family.  There will also be an awesome FIREWORKS display to culminate the night’s celebration!
