Ring in the New Year in Historic Downtown McKinney! McKinney Performing Arts Center at the Historic Collin County Courthouse hosts a blowout bash of historic proportions featuring casino games, dancing, hors d'oeuvres and a champagne toast.

Enjoy dinner downtown. Then get the party started with New Year festivities at MPAC. Guests will groove to the beats of DJ Mark Brown and sip cocktails in the building's old vault which has been retrofitted as a lounge. Las Vegas style entertainment featuring casino games including Black Jack, Craps, Roulette and Texas Hold 'Em. Dare to visit one of our intrepid fortune tellers for a peak at 2013 and beyond. Visit our photo booth for a memorable keepsake. Trumpet in the New Year with noisemakers, horns and party favors as we countdown to midnight. Plus, there will be drinks and lots of great nibbles.

New Year's Eve is a favorite celebration for many; the perfect time to toast fond memories of the passing year and ring in the new one with high hopes, dreams and wishes.  The team at MPAC wanted to do something special and unique for our residents for New Years and we believe that the center of where our wonderful history began is the perfect place to make that happen.  MPAC will be "the place to be" December 31.  The great news is ... our residents don't have to drive far to hit the big city lights ... we are bringing them to them.  So put on your dancing shoes and consider making memories with us in Historic Downtown McKinney.

“MPAC is the perfect NYE destination in McKinney because we are known for great food, spirits and music. We’ll set a true atmosphere throughout the many rooms at MPAC for our guests to celebrate.”

Ty Lake, Director of McKinney Main Street and MPAC says that her guests continually ask for a NYE celebration in downtown. “Also, I have always wanted to throw a huge bash with ‘meaning’ behind it and celebrating our past, present and future makes such great sense to hold it here.” She adds.

Tickets for McKinney NYE are $75 each and include casino chips, drink tickets, party favors and refreshments. Tickets are limited and available at mckinneyperformingartscenter.org or through MPAC's Emerson Ticket Office at 214-544-4630.
