Gettysburg New Year’s Celebration

December 31, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - January 1, 2024 @ 12:00 am

As we bid farewell to 2023, Gettysburg’s Lincoln Square will undergo an exciting transformation into a brightly colored, lively dance venue, reflecting a departure from the traditional way this historic town celebrates the arrival of the new year.

A new tradition was started in 2022, when the town celebrated the inaugural “Let’s Raise Abe’s Hat.” This year, Gettysburg Pride and Gettysburg Alive have elected to turn the square into a dance party.

Spirit Sound and Light, the renowned event production company out of Mechanicsburg, PA, will work their magic to turn Lincoln Square into a colorfully lit dance party, creating a vibrant and visually stunning atmosphere where the community can come together to celebrate the new year. At midnight, the tradition will continue: a newly redesigned Abe’s hat will be raised up over Gettysburg.

In Gettysburg, tradition holds a special place in the hearts of its residents; last year, a new tradition “Let’s Raise Abe’s Hat,” was introduced, and the community embraced it wholeheartedly.  This year, “Let’s Raise Abe’s Hat and Dance” with the same warm welcome.
