Ring in the New Year in style at the celebration of the season, Midnight at Newfields. This luxurious black-tie celebration boasts an open bar and delightful bites in the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s most festive spots. This year’s theme is “Under the Stars” and guests will enjoy glitz, glamour, music, and high spirits.  

Dance the night away in the heart of the Indianapolis Museum of Art to Chicago’s premier old school Swing, Rhythm & Blues band, The Rhythm Rockets. Be awestruck by breathtaking views of a brand-new curated fireworks showcase on the Clowes Pavilion ceiling, be dazzled by Winterlights, and enjoy endless flavorful food, and festive specialty cocktails and mocktails. Don’t miss Tito’s Ice Bar outside on the Alliance Sculpture Court. There will be multiple spots to catch the countdown and a can’t miss kiss. 

Go all in. Upgrade your experience for $50 with the VIP Lounge in THE LUME Indianapolis. This first-class ticket add-on comes with everything the Midnight ticket offers, plus an over-the-top experience in THE LUME Indianapolis. You’ll be transported to Vincent van Gogh’s Paris as paintings like Starry Night and Sunflowers come alive all around you. VIPs will have access to champagne, extra-special cocktails, caviar and culinary creations by Newfields’ own Chef Patrick Russ and team. Close out the night with a countdown like never before.
