Lieutenant Governor’s New Year’s Day Celebration Postponed

Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020
Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty announced today that the annual New Year’s Day Celebration at Government House will be postponed.
“To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and to support public health guidelines, we’ve decided to postpone our New Year’s Day celebration” said the Lieutenant Governor. “We will monitor the evolving situation and consider hosting a safe event at a later date.”
The first New Year’s Day celebration was hosted by the Lieutenant Governor in 1884. The tradition continued until the early 1970s. The event was rejuvenated in 1985 and has been held continuously for the past 35 years.
Although the January 1st event will not proceed, you can still visit virtually historic Government House while it is beautifully decorated for the season. Visit for more information.
