Event description

Description

With such a rich diversity in Rockford, we are happy to be able to celebrate the ways we are different and the same. From dancing to traditions...we can all celebrate the promise in a new year! Please join us in celebrating another country's new year each hour!

Event Ticket Prices:
Burpee Museum Members: $4
Guests 13 and older: $10
Children 4 through 12: $9
Children up to 3: FREE

Family Pass: $35 (includes immediate family only)


Use your passport to visit the different cultures, make lots of crafts, and welcome the New Year. Our family tradition will engage all ages.

View traditional artifacts used in celebrations and discover animals from the far reaches of the world. These animals and artifacts are from Burpee Museum’s Permanent Collection and are seldom seen. Learn of New Year’s traditions from Rockford’s Sister Cities around the world, plus numerous other local ethnic groups, who will have displays of the geography and culture of their countries.

Join the hourly countdown welcoming 2019 as the sun travels the globe. We parade through the museum with hats and noise makers that the children have made celebrating 2019’s arrival to far flung places like Singapore, Dubai and Kenya.
