NYRE fundraising events:

Button purchases pay for only a portion of the of New Year’s Rockport Eve, and we are continually engaged in fundraising to make up the difference.  Visit the Fundraisers page for information about fun, year-round activities.  We would also welcome any donations (no amount is too small) by mailing your check made out to NYRE to Cape Ann Savings Bank, PO Box 180, Rockport, MA 01966. We also offer items for sale. Please click on the Store button on the site navigation to order NYRE souvenirs.

Donations to help NYRE may be made at any time.

We will entertain you with clowns, story tellers, magicians, musicians – classical, pop, jazz, Dixieland, folk, country, gospel swing and rock and roll –  dance, drama, puppets, and MUCH, MUCH MORE!  And, we have planned a spectacular midnight event that will be a truly memorable welcome to the beginning of a new year.

Plenty of on street parking downtown Rockport, no meters.

Many of our inns, B&B’s, and motels will be open and we suggest you make your reservations early. Click on the Food/Lodging link for a list of Rockport Inns with links to many of their web sites courtesy of
