New Year’s Eve 2020 Guide: Celebrations in Red Bank, Monmouth County, & the Jersey Shore

Typically by this time, we’re able to pretty much aggregate a healthy set of New Year’s Eve events slated to occur around the area. However, this is unlike any other year before and it’s no surprise that New Year’s Eve 2020 events are all but non-existent. But yet, there are a few events that are indeed happening.

While most people intend on celebrating at home due to the spike of coronavirus COVID-19 cases spiking across the area, establishments that do intend on hosting New Year’s Eve 2020 explicitly state that there are strict restrictions on capacity — so registering or signing up for them sooner than later is ideal.

If you’re looking to celebrate somewhere locally, we’ve curated some below for you to consider. Just remember to celebrate responsibly. Here’s to new beginnings with the upcoming new year!
