Columbia Eve Fest is around the corner and we are getting ready to “LIGHT THE MAGIC!” Come join us for a New Year’s Eve celebration on December 31st, 2014 in The District of downtown Columbia, MO! We have some amazing entertainment coming in and are excited to have lots of ideas still magically transforming into a wonderful event for YOU!

Last year’s new footprint was warmly received in the closed off block of 9th Street between Elm and Locust. The celebratory spirit of the New Year was evident as our participants joyously traveled from venue to venue throughout this safe and convenient path. We will continue this year with the same format utilizing the many, beautiful and fun venues throughout the Missouri Theatre, Columbia Art League, Missouri United Methodist Church, Shakespeare’s Parking Lot and the 9th Street Stage.

…some of the fun coming this year, December 31st, 2014…and more to come!
